Sherry, Linda, Jim  and Tena. 
My Mom, Evangeline, noticed your mothers obituary first and called it to our attention.  Mom will be 90 in a couple months but her memory is sharp and we’ve enjoyed recalling stories of fun times with your family.  Dean and Elizabeth were so kind to invite us to your home and include us in your trips to the lake and your dad was exceedingly patient in helping me learn to ski.  I was about 10 but you guys were all pros by that time in my eyes.  I will always remember your mothers kind and gracious spirit, she was a beautiful lady, inside and out.  We know this life is not the end but only the beginning.  There is more on the other side than we can imagine and after painful goodbyes there will be a long time to reconnect.  We look forward to that! 
Bill, Dave, Jim and Evangeline Hane
