Bobbie & Betty. Your father and I had coffee twice daily for many many
years. He settled the world’s problems…. it’s just that no one asked us
for the answers. He was a fine good man that many will miss but now he
is at ease with Annabelle. On two occasions that I can remember your
father shared stories about his service in North Africa and liberation of
concentration camps. No one should have to go through what he saw. He
was for certain a member of the Greatest Generation. Our thoughts and
prayers are with both your families. I also knew your uncle Olin Jackson.
Our very best regards to both Bob and Betty and families.

So Sorry about Mr.Plumlee
