  3. Carol:
    So sorry to hear of your loss. I still recall the good old days playing guard next the center, Lindy in Ferndale football. He was a great friend and athlete.

    I’m also glad we were able to visit with the two of you at your home a couple of years ago on our visit to Ferndale.

    It is tough to lose a spouse of so many years. We both know. Try to dwell on the happy times of the past.

    Our sincere condolences, Lowell & Jewell.
