Dear Dave, Peggy and Family,

My condolences to the family. I remember Dave and his sister bringing their Mom, Ann, into the Straight Farmhouse for a tour about a year ago. What a delightful lady. I envision her smiling down from Heaven, knowing she raised a beautiful family. May God's peace be with you always.
