Dear Archer Family, Please accept my sincerest condolences for the loss of your Father. Many times in life (as with my Grandparents), two peoples lives are so intertwined in Love and Faith that one cannot live without the other. You had such wonderful parents and memories that will last a lifetime. My parents always thought so much of both of them, as we do all of you!

Archer Family, how sorry I was to hear of the passing of your Father. Just loosing your Mother and now your Father I am sure this is extremely difficult. They are together again, as they always were when I would see them. I remember them from Riesbeck's, and what a sweat couple. Quit, reserved, and nice every time I would see them. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers. In Christian Love, Pandora

Phil, I really hate to ask this, but could you please mail to me one of the In Remembrance cards. I picked up one yesterday but realized later that I would like two of them. I put them in my family scrapbook and with your mom and dad's picture on the back of the obituary, I could only show one side of it in my scrapbook.

My address is MaryAnne Williams, 221 Smith Drive, Marietta, OH 45750

Thank you so very much if you will do this. I loved your parents.
