David, I wish we could be there Monday for the service but as you may have heard, Pete had triple bypass surgery on June 1st. Hopefully he will be able to come home in the next couple of days. I think that would be a bit early for him to travel and someone has to be with him 24/7 for the first 2 weeks. Then he has to have a repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm within the next month. They have said it can be done and he can be recovered enough to walk Monica down the isle on July 22. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I love you, Phyllis
