Aundrea, Denise and Allen--Just saw your dad's obituary in The Truth online.
So sorry for your loss. My dad is in assisted living here in N. Manchester and
not strong enough to make the trip to Middlebury. But we all send our love
and hold you in our thoughts. Good family memories.

We are sorry to hear that Edgar is gone. He was a good man who helped our
family so much, when he assisted Marek in his time of immigration to the
United States. What an impact he had.
