"Dear Sandy, Pam & Stephen,
I'm so sorry to hear of your Mom's death. You all are in my thoughts & prayers. I have such fond memories of your Mom, dancing with us in the kitchen & living room when we we kids. Such happy times! I hope memories like that will help you through this painful time.

"Sandy and Pam.... My first memory of your mom, Nona was when you'd just moved in next door to us in Cloverdale around 1964 and she was pregnant (very) with Pam. Course, I didn't know any of that... :). But that's how far back it went. Memories of your parents at the lake in the summers of our youth.
I'd always admired Nona, and hope that peace surrounds all of you in the days to come.
Robt. F. Walker"
