There are too many good memories to write about.  I especially remember spending the nights at Carp Lake in mid-Winter.  Lack of heat and co-habitating wih a family of mice did not seem to bother us.  Also remember driving your dad's car and running into a police car in West Branch.  Oliver was very cool about it and only complained that we left a scratch on the dashboard.  However, I don't think he ever invited us to use his car again to go up north!.    I have wonderful memories of the entire Cope family and share in their sadness at losing one of their brightest stars.  Love, Gennie
