    Dale & Family,
    I haven’t been in Frankfort except to visit relatives, and haven’t kept track of old friends. We heard of Goldie’s passing on Facebook. We had some good times at First Baptist Church, didn’t we? I don’t get out of town very much, so I can’t come for the viewing. You certainly have my sincere sympathy and condolences. I use Goldie’s recipe for sugar cookies every year at Christmas, so I do think of you all.
