Mrs. Taylor,
I was a Spanish student of yours in the early 1970's and worked with you on the Jr/Sr Prom in 1975. I am sorry for your loss, but it sounds like you had a rich life with your husband. You may be surprised to know (since I was a C student in Spanish) that I now have earned a doctorate and travel in the Dominican Republic. I helped found a mission work there. It was surprising to me how much the Spanish you taught me came back! When I am there (or preaching in Hispanic churches in the USA), I often think of you with affection. May the Lord bless you and your family during this trying time.

Dear family:

Only a few will remember me as the family babysitter when you lived on N.Franklin St. and the wages were 25 cents an hour so thats been a long time ago. I always liked your Mom & Dad and enjoyed you kids too. Haven't heard much about your folks since they moved to Colorado.

Sorry to hear of your Dad's passing.He had a good long life. He was such agood soul and so easy going and laid back.

I send our sympathy and will keep you all in prayer.

Arlene Hostetter Blue.
