    Dear Cousins,
    Uncle Carroll had told me your Mom wasn’t doing very well. It is so sad to say goodbye to a dear Mom. (and realize that you are now the “older generation”) And what great memories of your parents – two wonderful people – that my Mom and Dad also loved and enjoyed being around. I’m sending thoughts and prayers your way from Columbia City.

    Hi girls and Rett. I just found out. We don’t take the paper.
    She was a sweetheart. Your parents were special to me. So glad you had a good life with them.
    That means a lot in this day and age. Glad they will be together and that, we can celebrate.
    Grateful to have known them since I was a grade school-er. Prayers to you all.
    Love from me,
