Hello Deb & Gary,
I want to pass along my condolances to you. Sorry to hear now that both your father and mother have now passed away. We've been out of touch for many years, and I actually found this by accident. Deb, your name is on the 'unknown list' for our upcoming 40th reunion at EPHS. I went searching for your and Gary and accidentally came across this obituary for your Mom. I wish you both you well.
