Thinking of all of you at this very sad time! So glad we were among the many in Pilot Rock who had the privilege of knowing your family and our children growing up and going to school together. Remember one of the last times we visited was at the coast where we stayed in the same camp ground. Please know you are very much in my thoughts at this time.
