My Aunt Becky will forever hold a special place in my heart. Every single memory I have of her is good! Both she and Uncle Chick were good to and helped me when I so needed it. Love you Sandy and Bill. I earnestly pray that God will be with you and your families.

So sorry for your loss. We were classmates in school along with Sarah Old Sawyer, Marie Meads Davenport and Mary Ann Old Wilhelm. We had many fun times together. I had hoped to come visit with her, but due to family illnesses was unable to do so.

Deepest Sympathy, Mildred.
