  1. Dear Chuck and Jerry

    I have lots of memories of your Mom and Dad coming to my parent’s home in the country. Many years of picnics and swimming in the creek. I recently found a tape of your Mom and Dad talking to my parents and Hank and Betty about thirty years ago. It will make you laugh and cry. I remember the delicious pastries your Mom would bring to our house and what a great lady she was. It’s hard to believe that she was ninety years old. My Mom Dorothy will be 87 in December. She will miss talking to your Mom and their long friendship. Sorry for your loss. Sharon Leonard (Protz)

  2. Dear Folks,
    Sorry for your loss. We only have one Mother and it is very hard to lose them. I never met her but since meeting Jim, I have to know she was Avery special person.
    My prayers and thoughts go out to you and Roni and the rest of your family. May she rest in peace. She lived a long life and will live even longer now in heaven.
    With love,
    Sheila King

  4. Dear Roni and Jim,

    We just got back to the cabin and saw your email. Although I didn’t know Jim’s mother, from the obituary’ she was a fine fun loving person. I know you will miss her greatly.
