We know your Mom's situation so are addressing all their children!

Your Dad (and Mom) were great people and fun to be with. I first met Emily when I had a summer internship at USP Lewisburg where I was assigned to your Incle Charley when he was a caseworker. They had me for dinner and your Mom was there. Later, when I too was a caseworker, I became acquainted with your Dad. Fast forward many years to the time when the Holidays, Nyes and Susan and I, took annual trips to Senaca Lake for holiday wine tours. What great fun we all had together! We were also at Ards for one of your weddings.

So let me close with sincere condolences and our best thoughts to you, as you grieve your loss as both Susan and I have done when we lost our parents. May God grant you peace.

Ed and Susan Cox pgy
