Fenn, Lisa and family, I learned of your mom's passing from Todd. I am sorry I am not able to physically be there for you as you have always been for me and my family. Your mom was a cutie - here's to her. I send thoughts and prayers on behalf of all the people we have encountered over the years. Love Dave Pastrick "Admiral"
