Dear Linda, Bonnie and family,

Aunt Elcie (and Uncle Bob) were so good to me. I have terrific memories of spending weekends on their farm, eating Aunt Elcie's delicious home cooking, making peanut brittle, shopping for antiques and playing cards. She will always be in my heart. Love, Pammy Sue (Small) Eyring
