    Layne and Brook,
    I’m so sorry about your Mom’s passing. I hope that you will find comfort in the knowledge that she is most assuredly in the loving embraces of Merridee and your Dad. Barton loved your Mom so sweetly. No doubt he’s been missing her! Your parents were very dear to me and all fortunate to know them.

    Thank you for your letter today Esther, I was shock. I sent her a note at Thanksgiving but hadn’t heard from her since Sept. I’m really very sad. Prayers for the family. Judy Morell
