  3. Uncle Harry and Lorrie,

    On behalf of Kim, TJ, Ryan and Megan, we are very saddened by the passing of Aunt Dee. We never got to see you all nearly enough, but that does little to lessen our sorrow. Mom was especially sorrowful, and commented that she looked forward to our visits to Ohio, in large part because she enjoyed spending time with Dee. May God give you strength is this difficult time. Buddy
