Grace and Robert Weatherby
We heard the news from our mutual cousin Bill Edick. We are so very sorry to hear of this awful accident. We know that this has been a most difficult week for all of you.
We wish we could be with you on Friday but our son and his familly are arriving here in Castleton in the afternoon to have Christmas with us and my daughter-in-law’s family in Schenectady. It is a very busy and confusing week-end with 8 additional people arriving here to spend the week-end.
We send our prayers and condolences to you, Paul, and to your children and other family members.
Most sincerely, Grace and Bob
