Mick and Jack,
My sympathy and thoughts for you and all the family. I remember Doug from way back, as your little brother. I got to know him a bit as an adult the times we all got together a few years ago. "Everything a husband, father, and grandfather should be" -- what a great epitaph.

Jane, We missed you at last week-end's reunion of the SHS Class of '64 and were told by Lyndell Metz Floyd of the sad, sad reason for your absence. A guy and gal who make it 52 years are a rarity these days. On behave of all your classmates, our sincere condolences during these unhappy times.
