To the family of Dorcas Armatino,

We are sorry for your loss. Curt had the pleasure of spending much time in the summers at the lake while growing up and during his adult years. He has many fond memories of the lake, which also include Dorcas. We got to spend a very nice long visit with Dorcas over this past summer while Marcia Walker was down with us. Please accept our condolences.
