Andrew and Anthony:
I was so very sorry to read of your father's passing. He was a fine scholar, real gentleman,
and a good friend. He had the poet's gift and valued friendship. He will be missed. I cannot
attend the memorial service, unfortunately because of having to play the organ at the Methodist Church
in Catawissa. But my prayers and thoughts are with you. With deepest sympathy, Glenn Sadler
