Carol and Family,

Sorry we could not make it to Aunt Margie's funeral. Living 1200 miles away has caused us to miss a lot of family activities and get togethers. Sending my condolences to you, your Girls, your Grandchildren, and Aunts. We haven't forgotten any of you and think of you all often. Please take care. Love, Jan
