What an honor and privilege to spend time and have fellowship with you, Dot and Sam at our family reunion last June. I will never forget the looks between you and Sam as we celebrated your anniversary.

Dot: I'm very sorry to learn Sam has gone on. He was a fine man, and I always thought you two made a good couple. Though it's been many years since I've seen you and Sam, I will remember him as a quiet and good man. My sincere sympathy to you and your family. (Remember me as a nephew of Marie and Paul.)

We love you, Pap. Oh my...what fun it was to hear you "argue" with Nan about the TV or being quiet to get the "numbers." You bring a smile to our face indeed. ;)

Mrs.Creek, Donna, and "Butch" my heartfelt sympathies on the passing of your husband/dad. I still remember the days of the Kelker Street and later 5th street and 3rd street in Riverside.
