My Dear Friend Luella, you will be greatly missed. I cherish the memory of our fun time working together at Des Plaines First National Bank. And I enjoyed our fun visits every time I came to town to visit my sister. I remember how much you loved playing virtual bowling and Mary & I always had so much fun bowling with you. I miss our phone chats and will miss your smiling face. I take comfort in knowing you are with your Beloved Bill.
Buzz Off to Heaven, Luella, until we meet again.
Your Friends, Chris & Mary
