    To Mary, Kyle, Margaret (Maggie) and Cody Jacket,
    As Maggie and Kyle’s relationship progressed, we sure enjoyed meeting Dick at our cabin on Green Lake and seeing him on Kyle’s birthday at a restaurant in South Mpls. It was fun to see his connection to his grand kids. With experience of a multi-generational household, Dick’s long and full life was such a blessing. Thinking of you and the extended Sable family.
