    Bill / Nancy; Bert / Loretta; Jim / Brenda:

    Your mother is an example of how we all should be as we age. I can still see her and Dutch out at the sawmill doodling slab away from the rollers and bantering back & forth at one another. She always had a friendly way about her and loved to talk. She lived life as full as she could in her later years and I know you all took very good care of her watching over her. She’s in a better place now with your dad. She led a long and very full life.
