    Dear Joe, I was o sorry to read of your mother’s passing. We first met your parents over 60 years ago when Bill used their electricity to clear the tress on our lot behind their house. That was the beginning of a long friendship. Both your parents were very special, loving people. We have many fond memories of them. Natalie was fortunate to have lived a very full and long life. God bless her and your family.
    Mary Ann and Bill
