I am very sorry about Dr. Griffis passing. What a super neighbor, I have fond memories of him taking me up in his plane when I was a teenager and fascinated with planes.

May God be with you Mrs. Griffis and your family during this difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Joan McLaughlin Thompson
