Dear Greg & Greta,

We were shocked to hear of your Mom's passing. Sending our love and prayers to you.

I remember, Greta, when you and Clarissa were 8 or 9 and Clarissa had walked across our pasture to your house to play with you. I called your Mom to send her home for lunch. Your Mom said Clarissa had left awhile ago. Panic set in because she wasn't home. Your Mom met me in the pasture and we called and called for Clarissa. I turned toward our house and there she was on our back porch. Your Mom and I let out a huge sigh of relief. Clarissa had gone into the house and I hadn't seen her.

My deepest sympathy and prayers to all the family. Paulette was such a sweet soul. My mother and I bowled with her in the league in Sandy Lake. She was lots of fun. Good memories will always keep her alive.
