  • Monica,
    My sister sent me your mom’s obit and I was so sorry to hear about her passing. I have many happy memories of your folks and living around the corner from all of you. Bike rides, playing in the oats while your dad harvested and your old corn crib as a play house. We had some great fun! Mom was always excited to get a letter from Dot and they corresponded for many years. Maybe they are visiting together right now. XO
