Jean and Levi Jr. I am sorry for your loss. I got to know your sister when I was living with my sister in Waldoboro. Joan and Richard would bring some goodies down to us. We would set and talk about things in the past. Also, I remember so well going to your fathers and mother’s farm in North Waldoboro when I was much younger. The farm was a beautiful piece of property and very well maintained. Jean, would you please E-mail me you mailing address and phone number. It would be much appreciated. With deepest sympathy, Your cousin Richard in San Diego
