Cathy and Dennis,
Please accept my sympathies in the loss of Cathie's father. I am glad you were able to get to Florida and have time to visit with him before his death. Cherish the memories you have of your time with your Dad. May they bring you comfort in the coming days.
With sincere sympathy, Bonnie Bowman

Bob and I lived about a mile apart from 1936 till 1945 "up on the hill" outside of Attica. We lived on Townline Rd - now Vernal Rd and Bob lived on East Main St. Rd. We attended West Middlebury #4 School District, Bob was a year behind me and in the same grade as my sister Ruth. Condolences to the family. He was a great guy, and we used to practice basketball in his father's barn
