Brother Christensen is now working on the plaque. He approached me Sunday

case of breakage or leakage. I am concerned about that. Someone might not

I am going to go rest. I am thinking about you and praying for you
several times everyday.
Please write your Dad a little note every now and then if you get a minute.
