My sincere sympathy to all the family.

We are so sorry to hear news of your loss. Steve and I have many good memories of times when we got together for social events and to play cards with Dale and Jenny. I credit my computer skills to Dave who taught a class I took at Wright State years ago. I often recall his excitement the class after returning from a training he attended where a whole new system was introduced. Windows has changed our world.
We send our condolences to you all–your mother was a devoted member of your church.
Steve and Joyce Schroer
