    Dear Kay and Girls: I know it has been a hard time these last few years but Dad was such a great person and loved all of you so much. Remember the good things and you will even see humor in some of the bad things that happen later on. You girls have always had parents that loved you and that is so special for each of you.

    If I remember right Kay you were married in August. I remember it being so hot. Not just hot but hot hot. It was a lovely wedding and I was so glad to be a part of it.

    Love to you all through all the years.
