Dear Lurline - I am so sorry to hear of your Mother's death. She was a lovely lady and she lived to a grand old age. Her passing naturally makes me think of Melinda and how much she cared for you and for your Mother. She told me shortly before her death that her childhood in Cedar Lawn with you and your family were the happiest times of her life. I too have dear memories of those wonderful years and I hope you know how great a part you and your dear, kind Mother played in those times.

I hope you are doing well and find peace in happy thoughts of the memories we all share.
Melinda's daughter Angela and son Christopher join me in these wishes.

With love - Sue Eubanks Maxwell Dart
