Linda and Larry and families, I want to extend my heartfelt sympathy in the loss of your father. I have so many fond memories as a kid at your house. Also remember your folks loving to ride their motorcycle. I am visiting my daughter in Georgia so I am unable to offer my condolences in person. Prayers to you. Donna Brown Holz
