To: Charles Confer
Dear Dad, this is the first Saturday at home that Mom and I will be listening to the Prairie Home Companion without you. Relaxing by our wood stove in the winter and singing along to Begin Rebop Rhubarb Pie will always be one of my favorite memories growing up. We love you and miss you every day. Love, Judy and Francesca
