    Amelia, I’m so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I’m sorry I didn’t know when the service was going to be in Springfield. I would have loved to see you and Tracy. I always remember the day your dad brought in the top ten record your dad brought home when we were still in high school, Almost Persuaded, and then the days when WW III would hit before we had to go to school. I think of you and Tracy often. Take care of yourself.
