Dearest Charlotte and family:

Dick was my last living Uncle. My Mother, Lois, would often bring out our picture albums–especially as she grew older–and we’d reminisce about the fun trips we’d take on the train from Seattle to Wisconsin where we’d visit Chod, Dick and my cousins during summer vacations. You are in my prayers during this difficult time. Love, Robin
