Henry & Mary,
Sharon Niemeyer, Diane Brown, and I (1973 Chrisman Gleam editor, co-editors) went to your mom and dad's business to sell them an ad. I remember thinking that your mom was so pretty. Your mom and dad genuinely acted like they were interested in our project, asking us lots of questions, and of course bought an ad for our senior magazine.
I just wanted you both to know that I am thinking about you and your family in your time of grief.
Respectfully, Kathy Kennedy
