Robert, Ressa, ,Julia, and family, my deepest sympathy on the passing of Van. I did not attend River High School, but always heard how caring and helpful he was towards others. The people from his generation were made from a different mold, and were fighters to the end. They lived during the early wars and the depression, and it made them appreciate everything they had, worked very hard all their lives, and loved their families. Cherish the memories you have made over the years, as it will help during these most difficult times. May God's peace and comfort be with all of you, as you will be in my prayers. In Christian Love, Pandora
