Patti, Tim, Tom,

My deepest sympathies to you all on your Mom's passing. Aunt Kay was, in all my interactions with her, simply a lovely human being.

I always enjoyed seeing her (often at the sibling bi-annuals on the east coast). At the last one, in Hamburg - 2013 I think - the two of us had a knit-a-thon. In Gettysburg maybe 8 or 10 years back, I was their get-around driver (the co-car with Uncle Verne had been terrifying them, and I volunteered). Once, at the Denver airport 20 plus years ago, where she and Uncle Al met me for a long layover, they together presented a theory of reliousity versus spirituality in a way that was interesting, clear, and very helpful to me .

I had the good luck to be the first offspring of that generation, so I think I got bonded to the aunts and uncles when I was quite young, during get-togethers I know about from family stories, but of which I have no direct memories. But the feeling of love and bondedness always sprang right back when I did, though infrequently, see them. I'm sorry we cousins have barely met.

I know the last few years have probably been tough on you. I'll be thinking of you.
