I was so very sorry to hear of Aunt Alvina's passing yesterday. She has been so on my heart these past few days as I knew her health was deteriorating. Ironically, a couple of days ago I was searching some drawers at home for some extra Christmas cards and ran across a letter Aunt Alvina had written me around 10 years ago. She had enclosed several pictures along with it. How I treasure those! Please know that we share in your sorrow and will be praying for all of you in the days and weeks to come. Our love to you all, Hugh and Sherri Hollar

We remember the great times we had with your family on Elise Drive, Butler. We both are so sorry to hear of your loss. Your mother was a great lady with much class. We were talking about her as we drove past the Whitestown Apartments just the other day. We were talking about our son Eric and comingover to your house and asking if Vicki could come out and play. I think he was 4 or 5 years old at the time. Please be assured of our prayers for you all. Rich and Brenda
