Dear Nanette, Sara Jane, and Barbara,

We sincerly regret we were unable to attend the service today. Jim had a long planned doctor appointment at the very same time as the service.

I have tried to find your telephone number Barbara without any luck.

You will be surprised when I tell you I spoke with your mother only two weeks ago and had planned to come visit her. But, as you know I did not get there. She sounded well so I pray she went quickly like my mother did.

You mother and mine had many wonderful fun years as girls together and now they are having fun once again.

Blessings and love to you all and your families!

Lovingly,
Karen and Jim Slack
Niles, MI
