I thought so much of your parents.. I did not know your Dad was at the Battle of the Bulge.. I love all of you and have great memories of your Mom and Dad . Your Mom was the best teacher I ever had. She knew how to make you understand math..I feel that they helped raise us because that was the day of really letting the whole village help raise everyone. Love all of you..Linda
