We met through our mutual friend Kathy DeWitt in the mid-60s when you were at Oberlin and I was at Western Reserve. Although I never had the honor of personally meeting your father, I know by what has been written about him that he was a devoted public servant whose life and good deeds touched many thousands of individuals. You are most fortunate to have had him with you on this earth for so long. May God bless his soul.
My deepest sympathy is extended to you and your family at this time of sorrow.
