    Lanny, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom and Dad. They were two of the most wonderful people in the world. They were always so sweet and kind to me and they meant the world to me. I was always welcomed in their home and it was a great pleasure to be there. They had the greatest life together and continue to share their togetherness. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Roger and your families.
