Dear Janette, Mike and Family, We am so sorry for your loss. I only met your Dad once. He had a great sense of humor and together with your Mom, raised one of our community's most dedicated and knowledgable assets. Our thanks go out to them for giving us that gift. Our prayers are with you and your family. Mary Ellen and Alvin
