    Dear Steve, I just read about your mother’s death and want you to know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I always remember Viola as being so pretty in church and hoping I would be that pretty. In going through Daddy’s photos I came across Luther League events. Remember the African Program where we were in black makeup? How we ever came clean I’ll never know! Those were good times. Hope you and your family (there are a lot of them!) are well. Take care.

    Love Carolyn
