was expected but it's never easy losing a loved one. So many things we can say to loved ones but never do, thinking there
is time for that is a mistake. Love you, Dad. very sorry for the teen years.

Those trout in the LeTort are going to miss Jack, so am I. Met Jack and Anna the last time I was back
in Carlisle, they had me over for meat, turnips and taters. Jack has been helping to sell my book ever since. Anna, God bless
you and the kids. We share your grief.
