It was much joy to see Dick and all the family in these pictures. He was such a pleasure to be around and, especially seeing Aunt Christine and him together was precious. I am so happy for him because he is happy, well and seeing those loved ones who have gone. I am also sad for Sissy, Bubby and all the family. I am so sorry I did not fell well enough to be with you but, you are certainly in my thoughts and prayers. I hope to see all of you again before anyone else leaves us. God bless and give you peace beyond your understanding! Love you much.
