We just learned of your fathers death yesterday from the BRAWNER's. Have been out of town and Louise has been sick. We loved to talk to Vaughn when we were walking and he was in his yard. He was a friendly man and nice to everyone. Leslie, we know that you have been devoted to his care these last few years. Everyone has admired your caring. All of your family are in our prayers during this difficult time.
