Diane and Dick, I was so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I did not hear of her passing until this evening, and I hope that you will accept my belated but heartfelt sympathy. If the service for your parents has not been held yet, could you please notify me so Dave, Rick and I might participate? Much Love, Joan Brigham, 1365 Douglas Drive, Clearwater, FL 33756. 727-446-9367
