Becky, So sorry to hear about your father. It sounds like it was sudden, so I'm sure it was quite a shock. It's hard to lose a dad (we both know from experience). Prayers go out to you and yours. We miss seeing you guys. Robert and Alice Westbrook

I want to express my condolences to John's family. I knew him many years ago at the Post Office annex. I was a student temporary, and he brought his receiver for the fire department into work. He gave me some unlabelled cans for our upcoming wedding in 1970.
