Aunt Helen, It's Tom, Paul Kyle's youngest. I loved Uncle Dod very much ! I remember when he stayed a little while with us when he got out of the army, or when we would go back to Maryland to visit, and when he would come up with Uncle Les to visit, it was a great time. I remember how great it was and how funny it was because of how funny it was going into the water if it was over his knees, but I got to baptize him in the lake. All were great times when he'd get to visit here. We are praying for you.

From my wife, Amy, and my brothers Dan and Rich
