My Deepest Sympathies to the loss of your Dad and one of My high school era 'Best Friends" as Dan, Martha, Vivian, were the Best ! Did you know your dad was the best Popcorn Maker the Old Prospect Theater In Whitins ever Had ?? He had a fantastic sense of humor, kindness and thoughtfulness to all, i.e. he would load up his car and take many of us swimming to the E. Douglas Res when it open to all, Free of charge, and laugh, we were hitchhiking back from Worc and not getting a ride, so Dan tells me, "do something" so I limped and moaned, bingo a ride all the way home. --It was my honor to DJ Vivian's and Dan's Parties at the 'Grey Barn', so cool to talk with them again--God Bless you All, I know Dan-Martha-Vivian were Taken to heaven by Angels and are in Gods love forever --
