Todd and the Durkee Family:
Sincerest condolences for your loss. I have nothing but the fondest memories of your Dad (and Mom), their generosity and kindness shown to me while growing up neighbors. Fondly recall our football games, with Robert and Mark acting as unbiased referees, etc., etc. You guys were the brothers I never had, your Mom and Dad great neighborly parents.
You are in my thoughts and prayers!
