Dear Polly and Stephen, I was so sorry to hear of your moms passing. I’m sorry to not be writing a personal note to you but I don’t have either of your addresses. Our families go WAY BACK and we have lost touch over the years. I remember the good old days “in the neighborhood” and all of the fun times our parents shared. Please know that I am thinking of you and hope that you are leading happy lives. Blessings, Ann

My husband, Ralph Goettler died the same day as Susan.We used to come to their beautiful home for dinner parties many years ago. Henry and Ralph worked together on many projects, mainly for the Republicans and the Columbus Symphony. Henry was so proud of their property and Susan loved to show us all the treasures collected through the years by her parents. Unfortunately I lost contact with Susan after Henry died but Chuck and Joanie Stadler kept me up to date on her relocation at Kendal. My condolences on your loss. My best wishes to you.

Dear Priscilla and Stephen,
I was saddened to hear of the recent passing of your mother, Susan. Your father was our first insurance representative for the gallery when we started thirty-five years ago. I have many happy memories of him and your mother at various gallery openings and at the Columbus Club. My Mom and Dad and they enjoyed each other’s company at the Club years ago. My brother, Tim, and I will be thinking of you at this difficult time.
