So sorry for your loss of your father. I didn't know your mother passed as well. They were great people. I meet them at Dr Kurz office and several offices I worked at. Take care of yourself Todd. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Richard, our prayers are with you and your family on the loss of your father. Have fond memories of your father from my days of working at Clapper and Sherman garage in Shiloh. He treated me well and gave me my first airplane ride. Your parents were good people.

I'm sorry to hear of Leon's passing. He and Eleanor were neighbors when I was a little girl. They were good people. I loved being around them; they were always so nice to me. And they truly were a great couple who enjoyed being with each other. I will always have very fond memories of them both. My condolences to the family.
