    Janie,Larry and Dale and families. I’m sorry I didn’t get to come to your mom’s memorial service. I’m just getting over wrist surgery and have a very bad cold which I’m sure no one would want to get. Your mom has known me since I was a baby and very good friends of my mom’s from when they were young until the passing of my mom in 1998. Your mom always had a cheerful smile and always asked about my family. I will miss seeing her at the beauty shop. May God watch over her and you her family.

    The memorial service was caring and thoughtful. I’m sorry for your loss. Vi and I were coworkers at the welfare department. There were 5 of us in a room on Broadway. She was the contact person for the Crippled Children’s Society. She had us for lunch in her lovely new double-wide.
    Vi was such a special lady. She always spoke lovingly about her family and she had a positive attitude about everything. She was a pleasure to be around. Oh, and I really liked the story about washing all the dishes. She and Charlie are watching over the family.
