“Dorothy and my mother enjoyed golf, cards, and garage sales for many years. They were our neighbors who competed with gardens and flowers. Iowa kind of friends you remember for life. ”

“Judy, I was sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. It is really amazing to think that you had her in your life for so long. She is almost the last of all the moms of our old Spencer friends. I suppose that Violet Reason is still around and maybe another one or two. I know it is a hard thing to lose a parent especially when they always been there for you. It is a good thing to have a sister like Linda and friends to carry you through the tough times to come. And what would we do without our children and grandchildren? You take care of yourself and know others are thinking about you. Marty”
