Dick,
We're so very sorry to hear of your loss! Jane was a very special lady and, as you know full well, a dear life-long friend of my mom. That said, although we know you feel the pain of losing her here on earth, there's no question in our minds that my mom was thrilled to see Jane when arrived in Heaven last week. No doubt they're having a grand time reminiscing about "the good old days" while, at the same time, looking forward to the day when they're reunited with you and their other life-long friends and classmates from Sharon Hill High School. Finally, you served as an excellent example of what it means to love and care for your spouse "in sickness and in health," and I know both my mom and dad truly appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed your friendship, as well as Jane's, over the many years you all knew each other. Blessings to you, Dick, and, please know, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this time of loss and grief!
Lowell & Lucy Parkes
