Dear Lois, I have thought of you two and wondered how you were doing. Larry passed away in July unexpectedly, so I am trying to get along with my new situation. Jack would always ask me about my brother-in-law, Ken Vandygriff, who Jack played basketball with at Washington Clay. Ken died several years ago. My best wishes to you. Alma MCClelland
