Dick; I was surprised and sadden to learn of Nancy's passing. Nancy and I were class mates at Reading High. I remember the fun Nancy and you, Bill Ebert and his wife and I and I can not remember her name !!!, we had at the apartment house on Eckert Ave at a much younger age. Kitty and I were always pleased to bump into the two of you somewhere in the Reading Area. We are currently in Scottsdale, AZ for our winter pleaure. This could be the last year for the trip as it is getting a little tougher with my Parkinson's disease.
