Barb and Barry:

Saddened to learn of your mom’s passing recently. I am glad that I got to visit with her in her home before I moved to North Carolina. Have known her since we were in high school, Barb, and enjoyed talking with her. Please pass my condolences on to the rest of the family. She is now in God’s presence and will keep watch on her family from above.

Sincerely,
Beverly Martin, LS ’64
