"Dick, Bruce, Brian and families, Our deepest sympathy to you and yours at the loss of your mom. Your mom, dad, and you all were the very first family we knew when we moved to Colfax over 55 years ago and your parents were key in that move as you know. Have many happy memories over those early years and am sure the reunion of your mom with Morris, Ed, and LaVonne is pretty lively. Wishing you and your families only the happiest of memories and all the best ahead. Sincerely, Chris and Marla Behrens Naval Air Station Patuxent River, MD & Fuquay-Varina, NC"
