Dear Janet, Mary Alice and families,
We had heard that your dear mother, our Aunt Florence, had been staying with Mary Alice.  We visited her about two years ago, and were hoping to visit this fall as we are going to Illinois for a class reunion.   I have such great memories of Aunt Florence and the `farm' that our family, way back in the 40's, visited every summer- - when you, Mary Alice and Janet were very young...especially recall playing in the hay, and feeding the chickens and hogs!   Also, sneaking a baby pig in bed with us. The 'farm' was really a different environment for us, and we all loved it, and, of course, Aunt Florence, Uncle Kelly, Janet and Mary Alice.
Our deep sympathy and love to the all the family.
        Shirley and Wally

Janet and Mary Alice and Family
So sorry to hear about Aunt Florence.  She was my last living Aunt.  93 years old how fortunate to have her that long.  I will always be grateful for the summer I spent with you all on the farm, I was 15 years old and I wanted to stay and go to school there but of course my mom said no. Aunt Florence and Uncle Kelly would have let me.  I loved to help Aunt Florence.  She was a wonderful woman and Aunt.  I am so sorry.

Dear Janet and Mary Alice,
Aunt Florence will always be remembered. Dad and your Mother were extremely close. I used to enjoy listening to the stories Dad told about when Florence and he were kids growing up on the farm. I will miss Aunt Florence.
