    Sincere sympathy to Mary and the kids, Mike, Kathy, and Barb, and to Cal and Donna. I remember him well. He was such a ray of sunshine when ever we would see him. I have many fond memories of him and am sorry that I will be unable to be present to share them with you. You are all in our thoughts.
