    I cannot begin to tell all of you the wonderful memories about your Mom. It goes from my youth until after my marriage. She was a wonderful, sweet caring person. I can remember sleeping upstairs when we visited and coming through that downstairs door when we got up to warmth, coffee brewing, bacon frying, homemade jelly and butter on the table. She fixed us breakfast with her laughter as she did it. I have other stories, especially after I got married and Junior I stayed when the whole family came to visit on a cold winter night and her electric blanket episode. We laughed about that so many times. She was a wonderful Aunt.

    We lived on Plainfield Road and we were in 4-H with you girls; meetings were often at your home. Your Mom was always kind to us and I offer my sincerest condolences. God bless and console all of you.
