Dear Dottie:

My friend in Findlay told me of Andy”s passing and I’m so very sad to hear of this. The last phone call I had with Andy, he seemed very confused as to who is he was talking to. I did not realize he was living in a senior living facility. I am hoping you are doing well. Please accept my sincerest sympathy.

Hugs to you. Beverly Miller, Jack Miller’s wife. Andy and Jack were cousins.
