I remember fondly, both of your parents. So sorry to hear of their passing. We have so many good memories of our neighbors in Beaver.

My deepest sympathy in the passing of your mother and belated sympathy also in the loss of your father. My mother was in card club with Ila for years and what wonderful memories I have of your Mom. She was a true lady and a wonderful person. I had sent pictures to your father a few years ago and he wrote back and told me all about Ila and her illness. He also included a picture – she was as beautiful as ever. She always spoke so highly of her son and grandchildren. What wonderful memories you must have. Again, deepest sympathy.
