To Everyone,
Wish we could be there and see you, but I am taking radiation treatments and so cannot leave here.
The Golden Years; you know all the doctors within 100 miles.
I was sorry to hear about Mary but knew sooner or later we would get the call.
The memories are many...the times were different...
I thought so much of my uncles & aunts...and I miss them all..

Malcolm
