Ann, Kathy and Charlie I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember raising Cain at your house. I remember spending a lot of time over there sneaking beer from uncle’s tap. We had a lot of laughs. I will miss Aunt Dot and had hoped I would get to see her after this COVID thing. But I guess it wasn’t meant to be. May God give you strength and peace with her loss.
