Dear Steve, Greg, and Colleen,I just want you all to know how much I truly loved your mom and dad. They were wonderful, caring, and loving people. I admired them so much growing up in and being a member of the 26th Ward. My mom and dad (Duke and Fern) also felt the same and loved them. I had a hard time losing mom and dad as I am sure you are sharing the same feelings I felt. But we are fortunate that we believe that we will be united with them again. It has been two years since losing mom and 1 1/2 years since daddy and I just want you to know that time will heal the loss you are feeling and also the memories you all share of your dad will help. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.Joan Blasko Hutchison
