    Becky, Sherri and Tom, I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your mother and my aunt. She was a beautiful lady with a caring heart who carried herself through life with grace and dignity. I also want to convey my condolences to her loving husband Robert who gave my aunt many years of joy and happiness as they traveled the world. I regret I will not be able to attend the funeral since Ann and I are in Arizona. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Clark
