"Reaching out with my deepest sympathy and love Diane, Cheryl & Libby and families.  When I did not receive my traditional Christmas card, I knew something had to be going on.  I have many fond memories of the “old days” when we were all in the same part-time businesses.   Wiley and Ethel were always a pleasure to be around and a great example of the slogan “life is good”.  May God grant you peace and comfort as you face the days ahead.
