Sherri and Wendy,
The years I worked for you dad were filled with so many memories that I can't pick just one! I can tell you that he missed you both terribly! As I was your age and he was my dad's age we had a lot in common. ( My dad was living in Florida so I was separated by miles too). I remember the day that Michael was born he must have had me call the hospital 50 times!!! I actually faked a couple of the calls because I didn't want to call back so quickly! Sherri, when the insulin pump was first being talked about he and I did all the research we could to find out if you were a candidate. In 1984 there was no internet so we made lots of calls and I typed many letters to research companies! I enjoyed getting to know you girls and your mother on the trips to Greece and Hawaii, it was good to see you all together as a family. Your dad will forever be in my heart and I look forward to the day that I see him again! God Bless you and your families, Laura
