I'm so sad. I was looking forward to seeing Mitzi at our 65th class reunion this fall, that is, if my health allows it. Mitzi and I go way back to classmates at Claremont Grade School, and we just talked on the phone about three months ago. Our sympathy goes out to the family, including Doug and John Eric. I'm sure Mitzi has her angel wings in heaven now. 

Much love,

Arlene Scherer Parr and husband, Dan
