    Dear Tricia and family,

    I only just learned of Susan’s death. I am so sorry for your loss. You may remember she was my very first girlfriend when I was what ……..about 9 years old. I thought she and I would be married one day, but we moved to Melrose and that put an end to that romance………lol
    Do you remember the walkie talkie phone we had hooked up form your house to our house??
    All the fun we had as kids playing kick the can (I think it was) and some kind of hide and seek.
    The good old days as kids!!
    Life is short……….the Lord says it is like a puff of vapor and gone in no time, but Praise His Holy Name. He paid the price for our sins and we can spend eternity with Him if we have received Him as our Personal Savior. I hope Susan had done that and that all your family has as well.
    Be Blessed and be safe with this Corona going on !!
    In Our Lord’s love and mine and with my sympathy,
    Bob Pike
