  1. Mike, I read about the passing of your Mom in the paper today. She was a very gracious lady. I will always remember how kind she was to us unruly high school teenagers (you and me). Hope to see you at the Memorial Service. Bill Willett

  2. Rick and Mike So sorry to hear of your loss. Our thoughts are with you. Your Mom and your Dad too have been our great friends and neighbors for 50 years. We remember how we asked them if they would take Tor into their lives and now eagerly they said Yes. We were happy they would take the puppy and he had a wonderful home with all of you. We have shared many happy times with them at birthdays, weddings, holidays and neighborhood get-togethers. Our Reese Road Clan has been a great joy to all of us. They were wonderful parents to both of you. Remember the happy times with them and that will help you through this sad period. Love Jeanne and Joe Carrier
