Dear Anna,
Peggy and I send our deepest sympathies. Ticky, Tommy,Nancy, and I still laugh when we talk about those Sunday trips to Smelkos and Farmer Jim's.....over 50 years ago. Always remember the good times.
We are out of town for another week and won't make it to the service. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
