Linda, sorry for your loss. It’s been 4 years since Merna passed, almost to the day. Sorry but I have another commitment so I won’t be able to be at the services. Please give me a call so we can get together. It’s been way too long.

Dear Linda Lee,   I am thinking of you.   Bertha and Ann, my two older sisters shared with me of the passing of your Mother.  I remember you  all,  even though I am 10 years younger then my sisters.   I was surprised when they said your Mother passed away,  She lived a long life.  As you know, we Sauders do not do a very good job of keeping up with each other,  But I still remember you all, I remember always thinking how pretty  your Mother was,  and quiet.  As you know being quiet was something that stood out in the Sauder clan.  I pray that things will go well for you  as you move on in life with out your Mother.      Blessing to you,  Barbara Jean (Sauder) Weaver at 504 N. King St,  Itasca, Texas  –  which is about  an hours drive south of Dallas and Fort Worth, TX

Dear Linda and family,  Sorry to hear of your loving Mother’s death.  Our cousin Bertha Metzler sent us email to let us know.  You were blessed to have your Mother for so many years, but still the separation death causes brings sadness and a place in the heart no one else can fill. May the memories of a life time with you Mother bring you much comfort in the future days.  With sympathy and thoughts your way at this time, your cousin Ruth Ann Bates (Kathryn’s daughter)
