Greg, Eric and family, I was saddened and surpised to hear of your mom’s passing. So many memories flooded into my mind. Both she and your father were always so kind to me and my family. I remember her and Jack often playing golf with Dad and putting up with my game as I began to play in Bucyrus. (they are probably playing golf right now without us!) I can still see them sitting on the right hand side of the church on Sunday mornings. What a Christian witness to their faith. They were very generous to open their home to us when we went west for the Fiesta Bowl with Ohio State. The list can go on and on. My prayers and thoughts are with you. Love to all of you-Marcia Giordano

I was sad to hear the news of your Mom’s death. What a wonderful lady! She taught me to knit, and I remember so fondly the times Mom, Dad, and your parents spent together while I was growing up.
