Richard, please accept my condolences on the death of your father. I always remember Aunt Dot talking about him and her sister Elizabeth when she would visit my house. I always felt like we were cousins. Take care. I was looking at the video of your father dancing with his new wife on Facebook. He was a very impressive man! He along with your mother will be remembered in my prayers. Take care. Gloria
