missing you a lot, dr. d! i remember all the times we would go to parties at your house for christmas, other holidays, etc and those were always a privilege and an honor to attend. we will miss you more than you know, and very much appreciate the hard work you have done all throughout the years of your life. i will miss the way you would greet my mom and i, and the way you would always comment on how similar i look to my mom because i’d grown a bit since the last time we’d seen you. that was something i looked forward to in seeing you and gayle each time we visited. and gayle, my heart goes out entirely to you for your loss, we are hurting alongside with you, grieving with you, and my mother and i are here for you if you ever need it. my most sincere and heartfelt condolences,
melissa blackford
