Your mother was always a loving soul overflowing with hospitality. Remembering the encounters as a very young child & the fun we had a children.
My dad, Chuck Fetters, is still often remembered, as I am sure you do & will remember your parents. My mother, Dolores Fetters @ 90 yrs is still afoot & remarried 12 yrs ago a lovely gentleman. As you have also lost siblings, Roxann has been deceased since 2001 & is thought of often, Fred Richner has been my spouse near 50 yrs & we retired to Kerrvile, Texas 4 yrs ago the journey has been blessed & good.
Hopes this finds you & yours, although deeply saddened, full of joy & blessings.
Your cousin,
Claudia (Fetters) Richner
