    My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I remember our fathers standing outside endlessly discussing the Phillies and would it finally be their year. What great neighbors you all were to us. We will miss Mr Dunn very much. He was kind and wonderful man and we all have great memories of growing up with him and all of you. We will always cherish those memories.
