Stanley, Jane, Mary,
My deepest sympathies for all of you. I apologize for not contacting you upon Brad’s passing. I have not seen any of you for a long time but thought of you often. You, Jack and Brad were an important part of my life when I was home from college on those summers days and nights. Please know that all of you are in my and Debbie’s thoughts and prayers.

My heart aches for you all..A.J. Dan Dustin. You all should be proud of yourselves on your true dedication of your Father. You made his last few months of life more tolerable by being at his side and not giving up. You are the best sons he could have ever asked for. Prayers you all find peace and know you will all be with him again someday. Love you all..Mom
