    Dear Nancy, I am so sorry you have lost your son so soon. I did not know him personally, but from reading about him he was a wonderful guy. His military service appreciated and love for his family for the short time he was here will be missed. Thinking of you with heart felt love. ðŸ'•

    Betsy and Mrs. Allen: I remember spending so many summer nights with you, Betsy, and Doug, playing tether ball in the backyard while the sun set, hearing Doug blast rock & roll through his bedroom window, and running all around the neighborhood in the near dark. I send heartfelt condolences to you both on this very sad occasion. I have very fond memories of your family and our times on Joanne Lane.
