    To Richard and family; many years has passed since we were in school; but I wanted to let you know how sorry I am for the loss of your father; may God be with your family at this time of sorrow.

    Cassie, Richard & William,
    You’re in our thoughts and prayers during this time. Your father lived a good, long life and we should all hope to be so blessed, but this transition is still a difficult time, we know. Treasure your memories, and we wish you the best in the future.
    Mom and Dad are in NC visiting Julie and her family, as she delivered a baby girl last Saturday (Olivia is their sixth grandchild!). Mom did receive your voice message on Wednesday, but I don’t know if you’ll hear from them soon or not, as they don’t have a return travel itinerary decided yet (as far as I know).
    May God Bless you all,
    Jeff and Dee Dee

    Bill Richard and Cass, I am sorry about your fathers passing. I am glad I did get to see him when I was in Indiana.
    Love, Beverly Terrell
