Betty, Felix, Joseph and family: Our sincerest sympathy goes out to you and your mother at the death of your father. I read that the American people no longer pray. I feel that every tender thought of your dear Dad is a prayer in itself. I am quite sure all these thoughts (prayers) will be with him always. May God bless you as you begin your journey through grief. Richard and I are but a phone call away if we can help in any way. With love, Roger Trombly and Richard Dietrich
