    For Tim and the entire Hurlock family,
    I am saddened to hear of your father’s passing. Though I did not know him personally, I have known and worked with several of your family members over the years. It is through your brothers and sisters that I knew him and your mother. That you have become loving, caring and upstanding contributors to the community speaks loudly and well of the guidance you must have received in your formative years. Please accept my deep condolences.
