So very sorry to hear this.....

Linda,Just a note to say that I admired your father very much. I can remember so many years of seeing him deliver our mail. I know there was some controversy when he replaced Hulet Emberton as the county or someone took away the star routes and Amon became our mail carrier. Not sure what it was but your father always handled himself with such integrity. I also appreciated greatly his service to the patients at Monroe Health and Rehab. Mother was greatly blessed by his attention. I know he has lived a long life and it has been quite a rich one. I am sorry to hear of his death but know he is in a much better place that we all long to be some day. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
