    Dear Terry and Family. We read with profound sadness this morning in the Kansas City Star, about the death of your dear Ellen. We remember with great joy the times we shared together at Grace Cathedral in Topeka. Our friendship goes way back to the University of Kansas where we had such a good time. May God comfort you as you mourn the death of your wife and mother of many years.
