Charlie, Peter and Robbie, My college roommate who lives in Belgrade, just let me know of your dear sweet dad's passing. The picture that is posted brought back lots of good memories of his infectious smile. I had not realize that you had lost your mom also several years ago. Both your parents were so good to me, while in college in Bozeman and of course hiring me to be your babysitter. If I was passing through town they would host a dinner for myself and some of my friends so I can reconnect. So sorry for your loss sending you boys hugs and prayers. Robbie I see you're still in Portland sorry we lost touch . Give me a call sometime, or email. Love Joanne DiBenedetto Burdick Joanne DiBenedetto Burdick (Portland, OR)
