Dear Carol,
I just happened upon your Mothes Obituary in today’s paper.
I just want to convey my condolences. I never had a chance to know you well. I am sure you remember me from 1959, when I stayed with your Grandmother, who I called Aunt Goldie. She was my Mother’s Aunt. All of the Aunt Goldie’s family were so special. If my memory is right your Mother was the youngest . She was indeed a wonderful welcoming person.She will be missed. I feel badly, When Lucille Seattle parssed away, she always kept me up with the family. Now that she is gone I don’t know what has happened.. I missed Dorothy Gerkin’s funeral. We used to keep in touch , Apparently not enough. I know you will miss your Mother dearly.
It is hard to get through. But you have always been strong and you have your family and the Lord by your side.
With deepest Sympathy
Sissy Reed,...

Aunt Goldie always used my full name. Mary Phyllis. I still miss her also.
