Doris and Bryan,
Sincere condolences to you both on the loss of your husband and father.
He was well respected for his fairness and hard work on the bench, as well as his work in the community when he practiced law.
We are sorry we'll be unable to attend the service since we are in Arizona.
Thinking of you both,
Carol and Richard
