This is Kathy Allen, daughter of Thomas P. and Lois Jean  McCrea. Dad was in C Company 376. Just wanted you to know that  our Mother went to be with the Lord February 4th peacefully at home surrounded by Dad and  my sister, Margy, and I  as were her wishes. They started attending the 94th Reunions in 1973 in Indianapolis and have attended 30 more since then. They met their dear friends, Betty and Millard  Schwartz in 1974 on the plane going to Europe on a 94th trip. They have been best friends ever since traveling together many times. Millard was in the Field Artillery in the 94th. I just wanted to let you know about Mom and will continue to keep Dad informed. They have lots of happy memories.
