  6. So sorry to hear the news. Both your parents were my favorites, as the three of you. If I started sharing memories, I’d have 12 years worth. Please stop at the business if any of you are ever in the area.

  7. Dear Michelle, Bill and Kathryn, I was saddened to read in the Clinton Courier that your mom died. You have lost both parents way to early. I have fond memories of your entire family and just wanted you to know that I was thinking of all of you.
