    Dear Family,

    Kieth and I enjoyed Dick and Verona over the years as we attended Woodlake Wednesday morning Matins. More recently we visited with Dick while he was at York Gardens–we sat with him at the Ice Cream Social this summer. (We live at 7500 York).

    Blessed be their memories, both Verona and Dick.
