“Bonnie, Carol, Alan, Richard and family--
I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother and sister. I remember as a little kid, having fun at the Schott house when you would have a party, Bonnie. And of course, Richard and Phyllis were good farm neighbors when Gary and I were married. It is so hard to lose our loved ones. My heart goes out to all of you. May God bring you peace during this sad time.”

“I'm sorry for the loss of your Mom. I enjoyed her so much when we were together at Roytel, what an infectious laugh and great sense of humor she had. Mary Margaret and I liked to stop and visit if she was out on her porch enjoying the day. Prayers and hugs to all of you.

“I'm remembering fun during our school days...and in more recent times visiting with Phyllis whenever I came back to Royal. I was amazed at how well she managed living by herself for such a long time in spite of her blindness. I pray that you girls will rely on your faith and enjoy the happy memories you have in your hearts.”
