Dear Mark & Ken,

So very sorry for you both, it's never easy. The most vivid memory we have is skiing at Scotch Valley for the first time and your Dad trying to teach Mr. B how to get off the lift. So your Dad gets off at mid-station, and Mr. "B" is still on and decides to jump while the lift is moving . Needless to say after an evening of drinking brandy, and falling we watched as Mr. "B" walked down the mountain with skis on his shoulder and that was it for the day. Your Mom and the rest of us were on the floor laughing. It was always such a pleasure to watch your Dad on the slopes.
God Bless you both and your families,
Marie & Ray Bosso as well as Lynne, John & Mie
