We so saddened to learn of Pepper's passing and are so appreciative of Joan's phone call. We have so very many memories of times with Pepper and the family over the years. Our days together at Brantwood and Chesapeake are so very warm and funny. There never seemed to be a time when we all were together when we weren't enjoying golf and the company of each other. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to Joan, Jay, Chuck, and Tracie. A smile comes to us with each memory of you all. We are with you in spirit and prayer during this tough time. Be sure we will be thinking of you as you celebrate this great man's life!!!!
