"My dad passed away this morning in Indianapolis,IN in a car accident. I spoke with him Friday morning and he told me of this site and he was so excited about getting in touch with his old friends. My dad had suffered greatly the past few years due to cancer. Thank you for this website. It gave him another link to his NC home which he missed and loved so very, very much."
