Michelle and Wes -- so many fond memories of you and your parents when we lived on Carmel Dr in Damascus. We kept in touch with your father via cards every Christmas.

Thinking of you.

Six years ago when I came to look at a condo for sale at Linnemann Station, Everett was the first person I met. He was very welcoming, friendly and kind. When we found out we were both from Northern Idaho our friendship was sealed. I will remember him always with fondness. Special thoughts go out to all his family, and my dear friend Sandra and Bambi.
