Rita and Diane, please know my heart goes out to you as my own heart is sadened by the loss of Mike.

Di, I have many fond memories of Mike and you and Mom and Dad Couch and all the family. I can especially recall a 4th of July (since it is that time again) when you and Tom returned from being stationed in Germany. Mom and Dad Couch were in Enid and a big 4th of July celebration was held with all the family invited -- Gramps, Juanita and Wayne and all the Blackwell folks. It was quite a day.

And, Di, I never will forget our dragging Tom and Mike to see Elvis! Still not sure how we talked them into that.

Rita, you have been with Mike for many years and I know you have your fondest memories. Hang on to them and cheerish them. They will help you get through the next few days - weeks - and even years.

Just know I am thinking of you and praying for you to find peace and comfort at this time. Remember God is with you - lean on Him.

Love and sympathy,
Amelia/Sam
