To Marg, Mary Lou and Susan...I am so sorry to hear of your Mothers passing. My memories go back to the days when your Dad spent time deer hunting with my Grampa and Dad then all would gather at my Grampas place on the Arner Town Line to celebrate the hunt. Those precious memories are the best to hold on to. On behalf of the late Harold and Mildred White, the late Ernie and Shirley Allen and myself, my thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.
