Dear Ellen - Our thoughts and prayers are with your family! We are so sorry for your loss! Your parents were wonderful and I will always treasure the times I would go into the offices on Hamburg Street to visit my Aunt Barb and Uncle Bud...your mom and dad were so kind to us! And our entire family was so touched by your Dad's and your kindness by attending Aunt Barb's memorial service. What a wonderful family you have - with an extra angel in heaven now!

My prayers are with you at this time of loss. Your Dad was a great help to me as we both shared our zeal and love for genealogy. We discovered common ancestors and enjoyed many conversations about this. May God give you His peace!
