Chris & Donna,
Please accept my sincere condolences at this very sad time. I have such happy memories of working with your mum at Woodholme CC and always enjoyed receiving her cards and letters in the years since then. She had quite a sense of humor and her words would always bring a big smile to my face.

I was honored to have worked with your Mother at the Woodholme Country Club, many years ago, Christopher. She taught me how to operate the "trunk-line" switchboard and shared some of the stories that you had written. We lost touch with each other after years of Christmas Cards but I have thought of her many times over the years. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your wife in your time of loss. Sincerely, John Dunn

My thoughts are with you Christopher, especially on Saturday. My "Auntie Yoria" was a lovely lady and I have fond memories of those Christmases in Suitland and Rockville, with my mom playing the piano of course! And if it wasn't for your parents, we probably would never have crossed the pond!
Love, Hilary xxxx
