I am so sorry to learn of Jere's death. He was my cousin and we grew up together in Kennebunk. We had much fun - biking, playing monopoly for hours, looking at his stamp collection, and enjoying our camps at Poverty Pond in Shapleigh. Patty, I actually learned of this through Butch Bilderback who lives in Alabama and who we graduated with in 1960. He often looks at obituaries in the Kennebunk area and let me know about this. I hope you are doing OK.
