Bea Ann,
I was so sorry to hear about your moms passing. I often wondered if she was still with you up in Centralia. She was the last of her generation in our family. Hope you all are doing well. I had a prior engagement to attend tomorrow so I will not be able to attend. Please know I am thinking of you all and sending prayers out to you all. Love, Nancy

BeaAnn, I was sorry to read about Maude. I did not realize she was so much younger than my mom. I think Aunt Edna is the last one left of that generation.
