Aunt Nancy, Kathy, Vance & Clinton,

We were so sorry to hear of Uncle Bob’s passing. Mom had told us on thursday that he was not doing well. As you know, she is in Arizona. We called to let her know. Jim & I were talking about all the great times we used to have at your house. Playing apples on sticks, dodgeball and plain old going outside to get the stink blown off of us. We even remembered that most of our stiches came from playing at your house. We just wanted to let you know these are some of the great memories we have of your family. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. And I know if Mom and Dad were home they would be there for you.

God Bless,

Wendy & Jimmy West
