John, Jill, and Karen,
My deepest condolences to all of you in the loss of your precious wife and mother! I have such fond memories of her and the old New England Banner 4-H club days at the fair, her stories about Dad back when she was the school nurse where he was principal back in Rockford, the beautiful collies you raised and Honey – the sweet runt of the litter we bought from you guys! John and Marian were such good friends of my parents – Betty and Bob Greene, and our families had some great times together! I think of your family every time I drive by the former White Post Farm on hwy 75! Oh, what a beautiful smile your mom/wife had, and such a kind and caring woman! I’d love to reconnect with someone from your family and catch up! Again, my heartfelt sympathies to all of you! Treasure the memories!
