DEAR KAY & LARRY
I READ TODAY OF THE DEATH OF YOUR MOM. I HOPE HER DEATH WAS PEACEFUL. I REMEMBER HER FROM THE TIME I STAYED WITH HER AT YOUR HOUSE. I SUPPOSE IT WAS ABOUT 1943 OR 1945. IT WAS WHEN MY MOM MARRIED WALTER OR WHEN BEVERLY WAS BORN. I AM NOT SURE. SHE WAS ALWAYS SO KIND.

I AM SORRY I WILL BE UNABLE TO ATTEND THE FUNERAL DUE TO A CONFLICT.

So sorry and sad to hear about Florence. What a wonderful and classy lady.

Always remember her kindness to me from Scouts and when I delivered newspapers to the family in the ole Lydick days.
