My most profound sympathy to Sandy & Jimmy on the loss of husand & brother. I've lost the very best friend of my life. Our union goes all the back to our induction into US Army some 66 years ago. RIP dear friend.

My condolences to the Cross and Dutton families with the passing of John. Always liked talking with John over a beer and discovering people from past and present that we both knew. He had some great pheasant hunting stories too.
