We are so sorry to hear about Ann's recent death, as well as "Whitey's" passing in 2013. I was Team Secretary for the Sikorsky crew at IBM Owego, NY when your folks relocated to the area.

They had several get-togethers in their home, and that is when we met your Mother. We loved hearing her call your Dad "Skip".

They were both very kind people with big hearts. That is how we will remember them both. Our deepest sympathy to your family with the loss of your parents.
