    Remembering your sweet family from our times on Pleasant View Drive. Sometimes I would look out our window and see this young and handsome father on a bicycle with TWO kids, also on the same bicycle. I always wondered "how did he do that?" Beth, Cindy, and I send our heartfelt condolences to you.
