CA was our dearest friend. We had so many great adventures together and made so many wonderful memories. We only wish we could do it all together again.

We regret deeply that we’re not well enough or mobile enough now to be there with Tish and the family. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers. We consider your long friendship one of the great privileges of our lives.

We love you all,

Bob and Joan
