  24. I was very saddened to hear of Mr. Borrowman’s passing. Some of the things that stand out for me is I always remember his quick dry wit, you guys ganging up on your poor mom at times, his bird on his shoulder, and his kindness. I hope the memories you have of him always bring a smile to your faces. You have my deepest sympathies.
