Lee Ann, I am so sorry to hear your father passed. I remember meeting your parents in the summer of 1973 when we drove down from Montgomery to meet you since we were going to be roomies freshman year at Bloomsburg. You are so fortunate to have had such a large family and wonderful Mom and Dad. No matter what age, grief is a difficult emotion and I pray that God helps you through it. It sounds like you were a wonderful daughter. Love, your old roomie, Ami

Sorry to read about Ivan. He was a great guy and as a child i spend many a day hanging with David. Ivan would load us in the boat and take us for a ride to Sunbury. He was a great skater and hockey player as well. Ivan had many talents. God be with you all.
