Jenny and family I am so sorry for your loss. When I was in high school your Dad hired me to work in the E.H.Barre plant. I learned many things that summer about what hard work was all about. That experience also motivated me to seek a college degree and ultimately an M.D. Degree. You should be very proud of your Dad as he obviously was a great community leader in Robinson for many years.

Jennifer, I was so sorry today to hear of your father's death from Nancy. Patti had told me of his failing health and your doing all you could to be in Robinson for him and your Mom.
Bless you and your family!

Love, ED
