    We’re forever grateful for Brook Hartung as he and Pat introduced our parents, Red and Mary Ann at a Bell Telephone picnic at North Park’s lodge in the early 1950s. Red was a good friend of Brook and Mary Ann worked with Pat. Their Friendship lasted a lifetime.

    With Heartfelt Sympathy,

    The Cully family
