Dave and Doug,
I am thinking about you and your family. My mother and I are sad for your loss.

Doug, David and Family We are so sorry of your loss of your mom. She was a gracious and loving woman. I have a lot of good memories. May God comfort you in this time of sorrow. Love to all, Valerie Hicks Reavis, Russell, Barbara Hicks, and Freddie Hicks

I keep hearing my father's voice at the dinner table, “Hips and pneumonia are the friend of the aged!” Not much consolation, but you have to know the two of them are back at the beach, in that trailer enjoying a cocktail and the setting sun. Kitty once told me after a round of golf with Phil, “She was so happy he played well with me.” That's the kind of lady she will always be.
With all my love,
~ Bob Kretz
Dear Doug and David,
When I was growing up I remember my great aunt Lena Warthan talking about Catherine, Dick's sister. I send my prayers to Catherine's family @ this time.
~ Judith W. Brett, Newport News, Virginia
David and Doug:
Our deepest sympathies are extended to the Warthan and Smith families and their friends at this difficult time.
Y'all take good care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll Always Have Buckroe!
Love to all, Carol
