Dear family and friends, I was saddened to learn of the passing of your father.  I remember passing the house on the Holly Pike and stopping for bus pick-ups on the way to and from school.  The loss of a parent is a very difficult time, but one which us filled with remembrance and love. May you know the peace of the Lord at this time. Cathy (Minnich) Smock BSHS '64
