    Barbara - My condolences to you and your family with the loss of your father. I remember my first ski trip to Bryce Mountain. Your dad was very encouraging with us...we were inexperienced and more than a little nervous. But with his guidance, we were skiing all the slopes before the weekend was over! My prayers are with you all.

    Ann, I was saddened to hear of Gerry's passing. When in Williamsburg I enjoyed visiting with him at Jamestown Presbyterian Church. We grew up children. He was a fine man.
