Sue, Jim and I have enjoyed the many years we've lived on Sunrise Road and the times we've spent with your parents. Your dad always said he and Jim were twins, as their birthdays were close together, but they were 20 years apart in age. We loved the stories of your dad, and the very gracious demeanor of your mom. We miss them both. We are so sorry for your loss - they were special people.
