Barb, Steve and Tom and the rest of your family, you have my sympathy at the passing of your father. I enjoyed looking at the pictures and I had forgotten how many children were in your family. I still can remember the days of playing baseball together with Steve and Tom for the Lancaster Merchants. Take care.
