  1. Dear Peggy and Alice,I'm so sorry for your loss! Your family was a big part of my life through high school and college! Peggy, you'll always be in my heart! Alice, Thank you for always being willing to share with us girls and giving guidance! I'll never forget learning how to change a flat tire. Winston told us we needed to be able to do it, because we might be on our own with no one around to help! I remember how ticked we were, but he was right! And we got the tire changed on your old blue car! My love to all of you!Jo Lynn

  2. Dearest Dimp,Surely wish I could have stayed longer to visit with you and catch up more. Please call to let me know when would be a good time for Laura and I to bring her little ones to visit you. Renee
