Grandma, I believe with all my heart you are finally able to enjoy all of the memories youíve missed. Each of the times you have heard us say our names, each of the times your nurses said we called, came or asked about you. Now, you can walk with the saints, sing and dance with the ďGreatsĒ, fish with ďthe finestĒ, introduce Heaven to a dish called Scrapple (with grape jelly, of course) and visit with all of those that have made the journey before you. Now you can touch the stars, maybe even have a game of Euchre with Jesus, and know what people meant when they said ďdo you remember when?Ē. You can once again recognize those down here on earth that have visited you and said, Iím your husband, or those that say Iím your daughter, son, your grandson, granddaughter, great, or even great-great grandchild (if they could talk), or friend. You will reflect on the many times you have said ď itís warm and wonderful here in Florida. When are you coming?Ē . (the Florida Visitorís Bureau should have paid you royalties) Now you can look down upon us and know that you have completed your tasks well here on earth. Weíll all be wandering if we have lived and served well enough to be worthy of enjoying the same. I look back and remember so many things that Iíve taken for granted. I wish that we could all learn to cherish every moment, and every tiny little thing. You could always make the smallest thing worth cherishing. A visit, a supper at Jerryís, taking us fishing, letting us make noise with a plastic trumpet or riding the pony on Abington Pike. Drinking the sweet tea from your refrigerator, ( I used a glass most of the time), petting your dog Sugar, Christmas Eve with the oohs and ahhs that Ron, Roger and Mike made so famous. I can also recall that no matter what size, shape or physical composition, Tupperware made a container to keep it. Riding around town in your Bel Air, Impala, Catalina, Bonneville and gee whizz, letís donít forget driving you to Florida in the Cadillac. Even losing and trying to retrieve a hook and bobber on a dam in Preble County Ohio was etched into my memory. I could go on, but, (letís keep the rest between us). Iím sorry that I didnít call or come to Florida to see you more than I did. Please know that I have always had, and always will have you in my heart. I Love You. Robby

Dear Lorin, Kenny, Bobbie and Carleen, Whenever I have a childhood memory, there is a Toshelog bound to appear. You were so much a part of our growing up. Carl's putt putt yellow tractor with the swing seat was probably the first memory. Lillian going to the basement to make ice cream cones for us, the fox terrier puppies each of us got, Kenny scaring me to death in a Santa suit and the cool wooden toys he made for his lucky kids, fireworks and pitting cherries. Riding in Lorin's jeep, playing with Bobbie who was so much fun as a child and as an adult with tube paints and tupperware. Visits from Carleen, the "sophisticated beauty from Dayton" in our eyes, and Verlin's children of whom we have the sweetest memories. Blessings to each of you. What a wonderful family. Joyce Ferris Hutchison Wilmington DE.

Dorothy, Bev, Bobbie, Ronnie, Mike and Roger Your mom was such a great lady. She will never be forgotten. What a fantasticat job she did in raising all of you. Irene was always fun to be around. I still remember your front porch on N.W. 8th and the shortcut through the alley to get to your house. My mom, Rita Witte, (passed away in '95) thought the world of your mom and especially enjoyed her visit to Florida to visit with her and Ferrell. Her spirit lives on in all of you. Sorry to read of her passing. She will be missed. Pat Witte Moore - Albuquerque, NM
