Dear Midge.......
I send my love and I send it from Dad too..........Dad loved you and cared about you and loved to come and see you. My prayers are for you and I will call you when you have more time. May the Lord carry through the next few days.

I was so sorry to hear of Jimmys passing. We were guards together during late 60s. As I live in Charlestown, I see all the changes to the old plant.

Dear Midge,
My deepest sympathy at this time of Jimmy's passing. I have fond memories of Pappy at the old house across from DeSales and Iroquois Park chasing Bob and I around the house when we were kids. I recall the stories he'd tell us from WWII that were so fantastic I still share them with my friends to this day. I've always enjoyed seeing the two of you on those off chances while visiting Louisville and truly wish I had taken more time to see you. To Pappy: Fair Winds and Following Seas, old salt. Thank you for your service, your stories and inspiration. Ronald Loeser Jr, USN, HT1 (EOD, DV, PJ) Retired
