    Dear Joan and Carol,
    I have so many great memories of you two and your mom. I’ve thought about her many times over the years. She was a fun friend’s mom. I always felt welcome when I came over. Loved watching Lawrence Welk at Marcella’s house. Sorry I found out too late to come to her funeral.
