    Claudia and Jay, I am sorry to hear about your fathers passing. I will always remember all of the years we were growing up together visiting each other’s homes your mom and dad always treated me like part of the family and always had a smile on their face and kind words to say. Our parents had a lifelong friendship and over the years a lot of fun together. I just spoke to my mom and even though she can,t be at the funeral she said her heart is with you all. I know your dad is catching up with Walter and George in heaven. God be with you, Maretta
