Dear David, my sincerest sympathies to you, your brothers, and your sister. Your mother certainly lived a long life. May God sooth your grieving hearts.

Do you remember the first year we were at Ohio Northern and my mom brought over a birthday cake for us? I can't remember if your mom came with her or not; I think she did.
