Joe and I were so very sorry to hear about Mr. Dwyer. I remember those nights when the poker games would be in full force at the Stauffs, with the Whalens also there. My two children loved staying over Papa's on those nights!!! Many wonderful memories - Our prayers and thoughts are with you all at this time.
Mary Anne and Joe Leighton, Duxbury, Mass.
