    My thoughts are with you, Jackie and Kirk. You can tell I’m no typist still! I have many thoughts of your Mom when we were in Girl Scouts at Baker. What fun we had. She was such a joy to be around. I know you will miss her and the last few months have been stressful. Taking care of a parent towards the end takes utmost patience and I’m sure you had plenty. My love to you all and God be with you in this sorrowful time. All my love-Cynthia

    Charles and I send our sympathy and prayers to you at this time of your loss. We will be unable to make the trip to Indiana, but you are in our thoughts. I have fond memories of a special friend making me feel at home in a new school, roller skating, playing croquet and riding bikes together. Love to you all, Jeanette and Charles
