Mike - I just learned of your parents’ passing while talking with Lew Kibling today. My husband, George, is a first cousin of your dad. I am so sorry that you’ve lost them both. We spent lots of fun times with them in Florida and have missed them both. George is now in a nursing home in Oneida, going on 7 years. I love them both. Please tell Jack and Flo how sorry I am.

I am so saddened by your many losses and will be sending prayers of love and light to you and your family.

Mike, I remember both your mother and father as people that not only I, but the whole town of Clayton respected and truly cared about. I often think of our parents and the life lessons they taught us. And the fun times.
