Betty and family, so sorry for the loss of your mom. Her picture looks just like the “Mrs. Jura” that I saw so often sitting on the porch while we played! You will be in our prayers.

Dear John and Kathy, so sorry to hear about Mary. I had enjoyed seeing her when I would give communion at Good Shepherd in the past. I wish I could visit this weekend but I am leaving Thursday to see Scarlett! May God’s blessings of peace and comfort be with you and your family. Gretchen

Dear Mary Alice,

I’m sorry to hear about the death of your Mom. I know how I felt when my Mom died and still think of her often. I wondered where you ended up after WLSC and remember we kept in touch for some time. You were a great Physics lab partner and did more than your share the times I went to Philosophy so I could graduate in 4 years. Thank you for that! Love Ya, Lynne Koehler Bailey

I hadn’t heard Betty. Am so sorry for your loss. She was like a mom to me too considering how much time I spent at your house. I haven’t gotten the paper since my mom died, & I don’t want to see who has passed. But I heard about Norm Smith & started browsing the obits here at Altmeyer…
