Scott, I just heard about your Dad. What a great man. I'm sure the trumpets in heaven are still blowing for his arrival. I hope you find comfort that families are for all eternity, not just this time on earth. Your friend always, Jimmy Donohoe

Marlene, Chig and I regret that we didn't get to know Luther better. It was obvious, however, from things said about him today at the memorial service, that he was, indeed, a wonderful husband, father and friend. We'll keep you In our prayers in the days ahead.
