I wish to send my condolences in the loss of your father. He was a neighbor to me and I really loved both your dad and mom. They were lovely people and I enjoyed their company many times when I was still able to get out and visit. Also your mom would come visit me when she should have been home taking care of herself but that was just how lovely they were. Very good neighbors.
