Catherine, I want to thank you for sending me a copy of your dad’s book. I had already purchased one in July and actually told Kim I read it right away and know it is a book I will read over and over again. I wanted you to know I am letting friends and family borrow the book you sent me. I highly respected and admired your dad. So glad my path crossed your families, he will be forever missed.
