Dear Gaskin & Doan Families,

Our deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear father/grandfather. We have always considered ourselves so fortunate to live next door to Bruce & Norma for the past 20 years. Between them, and Marion & Ed on the other side, we have never had better neighbors and friends. We will miss Bruce & Norma very much.

Dear Steve and Robin,
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your dad. Both your mom, dad, and you guys are part of the wonderful memories of my childhood. I always remember how much fun we would have when we were together either at the shore, at your home in Philly, or at our home in Swarthmore. Know of my thoughts and prayers at this time.
Lovingly,
Cindy
