Dear Carper Family…
You mother was a very special person…kind, gentle, and quick to laugh.  We will miss not seeing her at her napkin-folding duties.
Perhaps your dad, and our parents, Paul and Anna Ruth …will once more enjoy each others company…through the years, they had so many memorable outings/events together.
Please know that my brother Ron, and I send our love at this very sad time.
Ruth Ann Fitzgerald (now Ober) and Ron Charles
