  • Steve,

    My mom and dad always considered your mom and dad dear friends. I know they are thinking of you during this time. I remember being very little and visiting them and recall about 2 straight hours of laughs and jokes between your dad and mine. Our moms would just ignore them and roll their eyes. They are now laughing together again.
