Heidi and David, I am so sorry for your loss, we haven't been to Lincoln Park for quit awhile, it seems like time is rushing so fast past us. I've seen the adorable pictures of your Granddaughter with her bow. We don't get the newspaper anymore, putting me out of touch lately because Ken had neck surgery on Dec 18th and is still recovering at home right now. If you need anything or just want to talk please call me. This is my cell # 484-627-9010. Blessings, Karen

Heidi and David, I am so sorry for your loss. John was a very nice person and a corny joke teller. It was nice working with him.
