Dear Steve and Sandy:

In perusing Scott's obituaries trying to find out when John Gibb's funeral will be (he died today following complications from a motor scooter accident), I came across your Mom's obituary. I hope she didn't suffer for long. My condolences to you. Maybe we will see you at John's funeral. Pete and I will be there.

Take good care,
