    Judy and family. Sorry we couldn't make the visitation. It was because our children were in the hospital at the same time that we met you. You lost David then, we lost Chris in 1983. I remember getting together with you to play cards. I now see Jim, David, Chris and my Dad, Cy, all having a good card game. Our prayers are with all of you. Carolyn
