To the Palmer's & Dolphay's, my deepest condolences to all of you. Your Mom and I spent a lot of time together throughout our lives. We always had fun, got in trouble a time or two, but we had fun. She didn't like slowing dowb, being sick, and so now I'm sure she's catching up on things with her Mom & Dad & all who have gone ahead of us. Please know that I shall miss our phone visits & our catching up. May you all pull together in this time of sorrow. Love you all. Babes
