Ray, Patty & Amy: my deepest sympathy of the passing of your mother. I was sad when I heard Dick died. This is a rough year for your family. I was home to see my brothers over Memorial day weekend and we thought about your mother, when we went past your old house on Herman Rd. Thinking of you. Marnietta "Goehring" DeGroff
