My deepest sympathy on your loss. I will always remember all the fun times at your home on Pimlico Avenue. Both Mern & Rod were so welcoming when I would visit. May God bless you all and give you strength during this difficult time.
I was very sorry to hear about the passing of your mother.

I’m remembering summer visits to Pimlico Avenue, carloads of Lounsbury’s arriving at our house on the way to Canada, weekends on Academy Street when I would come down from Fredonia, and the luxury of having someone who was able to listen to the hard questions before I tried them out on my own parents. Thanks Murn…
