    Charles I am so sorry about the loss of your wife. You had many, many happy years together. I remember spending lots of fun summers at your house with Denise & Michele when we were teenagers. Remember the song “seasons in the sun”? Whenever I hear it – it takes me back to Lake Stanton – swims, bike rides and barbie dolls.
