Dear Kathy, I read about your dad's passing. Sad as it is to lose a parent, I know you will find comfort in knowing your dad was blessed with a long, full life and is now at peace and reunited with your mom. I am glad my Bob and I got to know your mom and dad during our time in Brewster--they were always so welcoming and friendly. May God bless them both and you and all your family. Sincerely, Maureen
