John I am sorry to hear about your dad. I am not going to be in town over the weekend, but wanted to let you know that I will never forget the fun I had with you and your dad years ago, going to the races in Mansfield on Friday nights. I ran into your dad several times in the last few year,mostly at the grocery store and always enjoyed talking to him. I will miss seeing him and just wanted to let you know Randi and I will be thinking of you and your family, Sincerely, Tom and
Randi Moore.
