Linda, Russell and Elmer,

I am so sorry to learn the passing of your father. I always enjoyed your dad's company, especially on those trips to Stewarts Creek when he was so patient in trying to teach me how to water ski. He had a great sense of humor with a lot of fond moments coming to mind when reflecting on these wonderful times. BTW, I gave up on water skiing as I never did master the art that all of you did so effortlessly.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. God Bless.
