Auntie Lee and cousins: I can’t tell you how much I would have liked to be with you these past few weeks since Uncle Bud’s illness. I remember Uncle being very soft spoken, kind, welcoming and always smiling. He reminded me so much of Grandma. Chuck and I both enjoyed our visits though they were few & far between. Love from both of us. -Anne

I would like to send my heartfelt condolences to you in the loss of your husband and father. I remember seeing your Mom and Dad walking around Marysville and their yard was always so nicely kept with one of the best gardens. Always had a smile and a hello. I met up with Rick this last summer. Hadn’t seen him since school. Your Dad will be missed.
