Book of Condolences

Anne SayersDear John, Dave and Bruce, Please accept my condolences on the loss of your Mom. I always had a soft spot for her because of her down east roots. She lived a good long life and can be with your Dad now. I wish I could be there but I'm on dog duty. Take care and all the best, Anne.
