Bill, Very sorry to hear about your Dad. I missed your Mom’s committal service a few years ago. Though we have lost touch I do think of you often. Steve and Marcia Dupoise

this is a name from the past. after 97 years and one month of living he beat all the statistics.
nice to hear from you. would have responded sooner, but have had other life issues going on over here in the west our son and daughter in law had announced they were expecting identical twins only to lose them last week , then we had a cabin full of company thru the long weekend. so today is letting the dust settle and cleanup i have been retired almost three and a half years after 37 1/2 years with my company in helena, and sue is now enjoying retirement after retiring last fall with almost 40 years of teaching under her belt so we split our time between helena and seeley lake which are separated by 100 miles of driving springtime in the rockies over here as the mountains still have a fair amount of snow unfortunately, we have both been touched by cancer in the past, for me it was october, 2016, and for sue it was november , 2017. but, we are both doing fine right now with the periodic checkups and monitoring. believe i heard that you two are now in florida fulltime now ? ever thought of a road trip out west? certainly welcome to stop by for a visit .don’t know where this darn virus is going to take our lives my cell number is 406.431.2322 and email is hope to hear back from you till then take care!
