To Mr. Yeager, Paula and Family,
I’m so sorry to read about the passing of your wife and Mom.  I enjoyed talking with her all the years I was their insurance agent.  We shared a lot of stories on the phone and she always told me how Paula and her grandchildren were doing.  Prayers are with your family.
