Dear Mickey, Chuck and Toni,
I loved your Mom, she always had a smile on her face and a kind word. Tonight she is happy with Uncle Clyde & Bonnie Jo. I have wonderful memories of your family when you all lived in the bottoms. Ever time I came home we had to go look at some new animal that you had! My best to you all.
