I discovered Alv's obit in the Parkersburg News this morning and my heart and thoughts have been with you ever since. The emotions of sadness and empathy also trigger so many warm memories. You and Alva Ray, Roger, and Rimer and Beverly were such a blessing to me in my youth. So many good songs, pretty harmony, and warm friendships! I will never forget them. As the days go by my hope is that your fond memories will bring you measures of comfort and peace.

I so apologize for not coming to the funeral but being vulnerable to the virus my wife and I have avoided gatherings to protect ourselves and others.

May the best possible in health and happiness accompany you going forward.
