Dear Colleen,Twila,and Jeaneen,

We were sorry we recieved the phone call about the death of your dear mother.  These are of course the kind of phone calls that none of us like to receive, but that seems to be a common denominator that all of us face.

You have been very fortunate and privileged to have your mother with you all of these years. To imagine almost a century, but be that as it is you will miss your loved one vey much we are sure. She has been a good mother to all of you and has coped with and survived many hardships in the past years.  No one can and will take the place of your mother, but you can cherish the memories of those special moments that are exclusively unique and special only to each of you individually.

We wish we were there to say a few special words that would help allay or lift and lighten these days. Due to Adam and Eves course we are all on the same course and path at the present. We are sure we will see you from time to time and you/we can remenisce some of those good times.

So again dear ones,  our heart will be with you during these coming days and weeks.

Your cousin-your friend and chidren,

Leslie, Philip and Rebecca
