Dear Karen,
You know how much I loved and always enjoyed your Mom. What a special lady & friend she always was to me & she will always be my "June Bug" as I fondly called her. She knew antiques better than anyone I have ever known & was known for her honesty in that business. Since you & I have been friends since 7th grade then I have also known June well over 50 years & loved hearing her play the piano the last time I visited her in Barry. June was an original & loved her a lot.
I would of come to see you, assuming you were in Barry, but I did not know where you or Camilla would be.
Deepest Sympathy in the loss of your wonderful Mom. Barb Plunkett-Stratton sent me her obituary otherwise I wouldn't of known.
I want to remind you what a wonderful daughter you were for the time you kept her in your home when she was getting poorly.
Love you, loved her, Sheryl Stratton
