  1. Linda & family,
    I always enjoyed your parents when I visited with them. Your mother was gracious and elegant, even when I knew she was in pain. Your father sold our children their bikes. It was obvious that they adored one another. I hope you find comfort in the knowledge that they are reunited and that your mother is no longer in pain.
