    Mike & all the families,

    I just learned of your Mother’s passing. I am very sorry for your loss. She was a blessing to all who knew her. My parents, Reid & Helen Lambert, were close friends with Ora & Evelyn since they were all young people.
    I have fond memories of them and of being with Mildred and Ronnie as we all grew up. I visited Mildred a few years ago in the Mulberry Health Care Home. She remembered me and we had a good visit. I gave her a new Remembrance book of the Oakland Christian Church as their family and my family all attended there together for several years a long time ago. My thoughts, heart, and prayers go out to each of you. Hopefully, your treasured memories together will help sustain you in the days ahead.
