Dear Cousins and Friends:
Thank you for your messages of comfort and your thoughts about my Dad. In his effects, we found a letter to me, Pam, and Sue, this excerpt from which, I thought might be meaningful to you.
"It has been a good life.I consider myself a very lucky man, and finding Jean was the very best thing that happened to me. I wonder as I write this, if anything comes next. As she lay ill, Jean and I agreed rather smilingly that she would try to hold the bus she would soon be taking for me, or failing that, we would meet by the lily pond on Wright's Mill Road. When you read this, I will know. I love you all."
Now he knows. Goodbye Dad.
