Dear Ellen and Ester,
I just read about your mother's funeral tonight. My prayers are with you and your families. I have many memories of our years growing up together. I especially remember the beautiful willow trees in your yard. These times bring many memories and I am so glad we had those years as neighbors and classmates. Your mom was such a nice lady!

Dear Family of Fanny, I am so sorry about Fanny passing. We had many good times at bowling tournaments and on Wednesday nights. It was always good to see her when I would come back to Cherokee to visit.
