Very sorry to hear of John's passing. He and my father always enjoyed golf among other things over the years.

Accept my sympathy of the passing of your Dad. He was such a great person to visit with at the Heritage during our many conversations together. My Mom respected your Dad since the days of Huntington Lab, and I too found him to be a great gentleman. Take care Cathy I wish I could have been around to see you at the funeral home.

Cathy, I enjoyed my short visits with your dad while he was at the Hertiage. He always made me feel welcome. He never accepted my offer of a few beers and some pool.

Dear Cathy, Don and family--My thoughts and prayers are with you on the loss of your sweet father. How fortunate for you that he lived to 97 years, with very few health issues until the last few months. I hope these two days will be filled with stories of the happy memories and provide everyone with a sense of positive closure. I'm sorry I am unable to be there and share this with you.
