Dear Jackie - Firstly, I must echo Janice's remarks and add I remember the time you joined us deer hunting. Secondly, I have thought of you and Sonny many times all the way out here in Las Vegas that the Air Force brought me to and I have called home, along with my family, since 1976. I want to tell you that the last time I saw you and Sonny at the auto parts store in Pa many years ago, Sonny had the most profound effect on me with the words he spoke to me that day. He said that he believed I would succeed and "make something of myself" some day when "others" did not quite share those same thoughts.
God Bless him for that and I regret not being able to tell him what that meant to me, in person. May you and your family have peace through the Lord during this time - Love Ron "Ronnie" Merkle
