Dear Mackie and all the Family, My heart did a double downer when I read of George’s passing. I am sorrowing with you and for you. Patricia’s graveside service will be held on this Saturday as well, so think of us as we think of you. As we grieve our loss of these wonderful people, remember also The Victory. My love to all of you, Kay Smith Mollach
