Condolences to the Family

Judy and Matthew,
Please accept my condolences on the passing of your father. I have fond memories of spending time with your family in my youth. Many sleepovers, I think mainly due to Dot continually having babies. Both of your parents were always warm and friendly. Please know they are in my thoughts.
