Dear Topper. We are so sorry to learn via the Waterville Times of your Dad's recent death. I know how rough it is to lose a parent, regardless of how ill they are. One is never prepared for it. I lost my Mom and Dad, both at 86 a few years ago and I do miss them very much, but know that they are in a better place now. Our sincere condolences and best wishes to you, your brother Scott and your families. Joel and Laura Allen, Hudson, NY. Waterville Class of 1965
