Bennett Bennett Cloud, September 24, 2010 Dear Janice and Family, We were so shocked and saddened to hear of Ed's passing. Our memories go back to when we met in Stonebriar (as it was to become) when you built your lovely home--your family of four (then) packed for a time into your "camper" as you transitioned from your old home into your beautiful new one. We recall too our wonderful trip to Cozamel, Mexico with you for our mutual 25th wedding anniversaries--touring around in the little green Volkswagen "beetle"...Such fun!! It really doesn't seem possible that all this happened so long ago and yet still so memorable as if it was yesterday! Art just found some old videos of you and your family up at our "old" farm--he's trying to figure out a way to make copies. Our deepest condolences, Janice, to you and your family from us and our family. We'll always love you both as well as your lovely girls and their families. God bless you all... Love, Art 'n Sal Art and Sally Phelps, September 21, 2010 Just a note to extend our deepest sympathy to your family. Our daughter, Chelsea, works with your wonderful Erica.

I have so many fond memories of spending the night with Erica and waking up on Sunday mornings, seeing Mr. Berg with his coffee and paper, always so quietly content in the midst of complete chaos with all of us obnoxious girls. I know you will miss him dearly, but I'm sure you are also relieved he is at peace. Love to you all as you endure this sad time.
