Vicki and all: Very sorry to hear about Aunt Margaret. I am in the middle of nowhere Minnesota and just got a text message. Unfortunately, no combination of air and / or driving will get me to Columbus Grove in time for Tuesday morning.

Please say hi to Gloria and our other relatives. Dad always felt bad for not having stayed in better communication with Marg after Roy and Clara's divorce. I'm glad they were able to reconnect later in their lives. Karen and I will try to get to see you this summer. Blessings.

Tom Clingerman, Nephew
