    Dear Angie and Billy, It's been so very long.  Our fathers were best friends in high school.  I have fond memories of get togethers in Clearwater when we were young, their music, stories, and laughter.  How much fun they had!  I recalled some recently, and discovered this.  I am so sorry.  I'm sending you some extra strength from Seattle.  I wish you well.  I hope you make peace with his passing.  I hope you are always comforted by his spirit.  I hope love and light surround you every day.    Kathy Brown
