Dear Cousins,

How is it that we allow time and distance to keep us from staying in touch? I have so many wonderful memories of going to Uncle Don's and Aunt Mary's house! It was always a highlight of our summer to make the trip to Prospect where we were allowed to stay up too late, eat too much, and go swimming! What I remember most is how much the adults used to laugh and carry on while playing cards. Good times - great memories.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Hugs & kisses,
Alicia

Dear Cousins,

Time passes so quickly and we don't realize that we have lost touch until a dear one has left us.  I will always remember the wonderful sense of humor and the great laugh that was always present with Aunt Mary.

I am currently putting together scrapbooks for my children's families and have been going through almost 50 years of pictures and memories.  I had just run across pictures of family reunions at your house in Prospect when I got the sad news about your Mom.  The memories just came flooding back to me and they were great!

All my love to you during this sad time.

Donna

What a blessing it was to have an aunt like Mary. She was our number one aunt and we will truly miss her. She was such a joy to be around and we will all cherish the memories we have. The miles separate us but our thoughts are with each of you at this time and always. Uncle Harold sends his best to each of you too. May the Lord Bless each of you as he cares for Aunt Mary.
           Your 1st cousins, Jerry & Neal along with our wives Marilyn & Sheila and Uncle Harold.

Dear Debbie, Wayne and family,
  I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your mom.  I have a lot of good memories of her and your dad back in the old days in Prospect.  Upon reading her obit I discovered she shared a birthday with my dad.  Also, I have a lot of family in Springfield of the same generation as your mom.  Too bad we didn't realize this years ago.  They probably went to school together, and we could have had a party.  Wow, enough of the trivia.  I hope you and Wayne are doing well and please accept our condolences.  See you at the next reunion.  Jim and Patty Logos
