John, Tommy, Lizzie and Peggy, I have such good memories of our family back in NJ, especially of your mom and dad, and all of you. I had fun growing up with you all. Remember the softball games and picnics at Van Saun? I'm sorry I'm not able to make it out there for Carol's funeral tomorrow but know that she and all of you and your dad are in our hearts here.
