Dear Judy and family: George and I send our love to you. We'll always remember how wonderful your Mom was with Eric when we came to town and she watched him. As young as two, when we got to my Mom and Dad's house he's start saying "Go to Smiths!" May all of your wonderful memories help sustain you.
