    Dennis and Nancy, David and Marla, Doug and Sheila, my condolences to all of you and your families. Your mother was at auctions I attended and always fun. Your Dad lamented every time she raised her hand to buy something as he had to carry it out.
    They both were fine folks and at this time I want to thank Dennis for the expression of sympathy he showed when my Dad and Mom died. Virginia and Goldie were quite a pair of sisters. I know how much Goldie like Virginia’s kids. Nice people!
