We are saddened to hear of your loss. All of us have very happy memories of time spent with both your parents. Dorothy and I teamed up many times to provide music at Walsburg. Loved her wonderful sense of humor and appreciated her musical talent. May God hold you in the palm of his hand as you grieve. Blessings to you all.
