We are so sorry that you lost your brother. You must be the survivor of the whole family. There is no message box on your cell phone, so hope you receive this. It's been too long since we've been in touch.
We are unable to attend the service on Tuesday, but please know that we are thinking of you. We'd like to hear about Heather and her family. There were only ten at the B. reunion in July. Jerry was in the hospital then, so I didn't attend.
Mike and I had a short visit with Alice White recently. She's still in her home but has caregivers coming in. Are you still in your home? If you do email, get our address from the funeral home and get in touch.
Thinking of you at this sad time...Phyllis and Jerry
