Dear Nancy & Stephen - glancing at the clock, it's just about time for your Dad's Memorial Service to begin and I wanted you both to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I have such fond memories of Uncle Byron, too many to write here! I'll always remember him and your Mom too and all the great times at your place, holiday dinners etc. Wish I could be there today. With Love, your cousin, Elise
