    Marilyn, Marlene, David, Terry and family, your parents were some of the finest and kindest people I ever knew. As a pastor (1972-2012), I so much respected your father, and I just loved your mother! Among other things, she and I worked together in camping leadership for the South Indiana Conference, . She was a wise and caring person, who was as good a friend as one could have. Since I served in the New Albany District from 1988-2000, I also got to know some of you. I send you my deepest condolences. I am sorry I will miss her funeral.
