    Our heart felt condolences to the family of Estelle, Bob’s aunt. It’s been many years since visiting PA but I have vivid memories of playing games outside well after dark and going to movies and going to the model shop with all the cousins. And the best Pizza ever was in Shenandoah. It was always a long car trip but well worth it. Just know we are thinking of all you and Estelle, who is now doing some serious partying with the bros and sisters. Take care and keep your memories going.
