"Dear Cathy, I am deeply sorry to see your Dad passed. I did not know until today. He was a very nice man, and I will remember him. My husband passed away from cancer in August 2016. Life can be so difficult when we lose our loved ones. My condolences to your Mom, and Robert as well. God Bless. Sandy (Reynolds) Rightmyer"
