Margaret, Bob and Family,
I was saddened to learn of Vi's passing. I will always cherish my many memories of her and how she touched my childhood in such gentle and lasting ways. Her smile brightened everyone it touched. Praying for you all during this difficult time.

What a sweet wonderful person. Rest In Peace Aunt Vi. I will never forget the fancy black cowboy shirt that you gave me for my fifth birthday. You told me it was just like Hopp-along Cassidy’s.
Your Nephew, Tom B

Peg and Bob - You are in our prayers and thoughts. I remember all the times we picked and froze corn with all of you - what fun it was along with the work! One of my great memories is the mission trip I took with you parents to Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. I appreciate all the support and guidance your mother gave me over the years. What wonderful and great person your mother was . She was truly a special person. Again, Mary and I extend our deepest sympathy and prayers. Mary and Howard Hinman
