  1. Susan, it has been years and years since I last saw you (probably in 1968) before I moved to Manhattan Beach. I’m so sorry to see your father passed away. I’m sure all of the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will be left with very fond memories. Peace be with you and your family. Patti Ward
