Dear Wayne, Joey, Lynn and families,

It is with sadness that I just read of your Mom's passing. How well I remember her and your Dad. From years of Lions Club picnics, functions and the Fair to babysitting all three of you when you lived on Benedict Street and hanging out with you all and various friends in common. I always enjoyed seeing both your Mom and Dad and talking to them over the years.

I send you all love and condolences and my prayers.
