Richard & Doreen, we would like to extend our sypathies to you and your families. I have known your father since 1956 and was a close friend of Betty and of course neighbors of yours. We enjoyed seeing him at the sunday music concerts at the park. He had a wonderful long life. We are still in Texas so will not be able to attend your fathers services.
