Martin and Marcie,

Truly sorry to hear about the passing of Bernice. I (Loyd) lost both of my parents in 2006, and my wife, Ellen, lost her dad just a few months before that, all this shortly after our returning to the Killeen area in 2005 to be of assistance to Loyd's parents. Consequently, we're personally acquainted with what you must be feeling now, and will for some time. Again, we're very sorry for your loss.
