    Dear Beth and Steve,
    I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. I have been trying to reach him for several years. I was a flower girl in your Mom and Dad’s wedding when I was 5 years old, and your Dad walked me down the aisle when I was married in 1972. I have so many wonderful memories of him. I am just so sorry that there was a breakup in our relationship, and I don’t really know what happened. I tried to mend it, but never heard from him. Also I never knew Harold died as well. I was unable to ever reach him or hear from him in many, many years. So it is so sad to know that my two brothers passed away and I had no relationship with them. Please don’t ever let that happen in your families…it is very painful and unnecessary.
    Beth, I have a flower girl dress that I wore at your Mom and Dad’s wedding…it is pink, and your Mom made it. I have kept it all these 71 years. If you would ever want it for any reason, just let me know. My heart is very sad! Blessings to you both.
