Betty, Nancy and family: My sincere sympathy to you in the passing of Link. He was a quiet, kind man.
Betty, I so enjoyed having you and Link come out to the old homestead for a visit on his birthday this summer. He always reminded me of Bumpy, and even more so now that he gone. To be able to hug you both was very touching for me. I miss all the Boland’s that sadly are all gone now. May you find comfort in your memories of all the time you had together, and strength from the family. We all love you too.
