For Daniel, Brian, Lauren: Now returned home from your father's service, I am remembering all the beautiful words and tears come down to bless us forever.
Who will ever forget Lauren's love expressed for her father. Eternal Beauty & Truth were witnessed by those of us gathered. As mentioned to Brian, Lois and Lee made their first home in an apt. next to ours 38 So. Main. Early 70's, your parents purchased a parcel of Abrahams Acres where they built your family home on the hill along Craigtown. In the mid 1950's I often visited Mrs Duff atop High St. Suddenly, I remember the Siamese cats--first I had ever seen. Your grandmother
& I enjoyed summertime conversations. Always looked forward Ted walking down and up High St (The Fifties). Remembering too, your mother Lois from J.T.I. Beautiful, gentle lady, soft-spoken, a teacher I seem to recall. Seeing her children today, I also saw your mother whom you favor in many ways. Given my light service at Perry Pt. as chaplain today, I was unable to gather with you at Nottingham. Filled with memories, i will visit your father's resting ground asking for his prayers for he is now most certainly beholding The Lord.
