I knew Doug from Jefferson to Academy. Plus from the Church of the Covenant. Kent was my classmate. Until she died, I did not know that they had a younger sister, Beverly. Sue, when I was at Pitt law, you and Doug hosted a reception for Erie area law students. My sincere condolence to you!

Academy 1960.
