I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was a very kind & caring person. I talked with her not too long ago st the Wakeman library. She was so proud of all of you. I wish I could have seen all of you but I didn't see the obituary until very late on Friday. I wish you all the best. Dawn Greene Winkle

Randy & Linda,

So sorry to read about your mother's passing. I really enjoyed her as my 4-H advisor. I thought it was fitting she was mentioned in the Norwalk Reflector 'Blast From The Past' today. I had just seen Annette Smith this past weekend and she is in Florida right now visiting her mom. I let her know about your mom and I'm certain she & Sylvia are doing a lot of reminiscing today.
Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
