My grandparents were Doris and Fran Trittschuh and my mom was Dixie Trittschuh Cantley and I remember how my grandparents enjoyed playing cards with Jane. I would visit in the summertime and The Cummins were always so sweet to me. My deepest sympathies to Jane's family.

I just found out about your Mom and just wanted to say how sorry I am. As I have told you, your parents were the greatest, as your Dad was a great influence to me. I share in your sadness.

Carol and Keith,

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your wonderful mom. She, and your dad, were such a special part of my life - from dance to church.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Keith and Kim,
I just saw the information on the internet. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Keith, I talked to Mike Leffel recently. I was trying to remember the starting lineup for the '66 basketball team. To my recollection, he said you, himself, Mike Merman, John
Northwood, and Rick Grimes started. Mike talked of his UD days. I remember you played football at one of the Ivy league colleges, setting some records.
