I haven�t seen Ladd in many years, but I have so many fond memories of him as we grew up here in this special place. I remember him playing Little League and Senior League baseball. I also have very special memories of his dad and loved to read his sports column in the paper each week. I am looking forward to connection with classmates from Class of 70 next spring and I am so sad that he will not be there as we celebrate, but we will be remembering him. Praying for the peace and comfort that God can provide as you share your many special memories of you time together.

As neighbors from Lake Murray, SC, Bob and I were so saddened to learn of Ladd�s passing. He fought such a long brave battle against his illness, and surely now he will R.I.P. Sending our prayers to Ann and his family, Ann was unflagging in her dedicated care.
