    To Marilyn, Richard and families. So sorry about your dad. I used to see him at Wesley Manor when I visited my parents. He was so good to your mom. They had a “Cyclone Area” get-together at the tea parties with some other residents. I think they are all gone now. Hope you have peace that he is now with your Mom. Thinking of you, Lynnette
