Dear Jeannie, Jim, and David,
We have many wonderful memories of special times spent with your family. My mother, Myra Wood, worked with your mom at PSL, so that is how we became friends. We were guests at your home for slide shows of your dad's adventures. Jeannie, I use to baby sit you! And David was my cello teacher and friend for many years. Good memories and blessing to your entire family.

His story of meeting Clyde Tombaugh was a classic, worthy of publishing. He was a great man.
