    I was so glad to visit with you and Elroy last April. I will never forget Elroy asking me to play Winnie the Pooh for the children one Christmas at the Sear’s Store. I am so sorry, I could not be there with you for the funeral.
    Please know how often you’ll be thought of through the days that come and go.

    Always Love, Deborah Ann
