Gene and Family, I’m very sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a very nice lady. I remember the time I went to Erie, Pennsylvania with you to get her a sweeper for her birthday. Mr. and Mrs. Altmeyer introduced us as I lived over Saseen’s restaurant. I met Greg at a friends house this was back in 1964. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Remember all the great times you shared together. I can’t make the showing as I’m visiting my daughter and husband in Beaufort, S.C.. I live in Hubbard, Ohio now. God bless you and your family. Always, Donna
