To the Class of ’64, We wish to thank you for your concern and caring in our time of sorrow. It means a lot to know people like you are still around.

Don was with me and his sister and her family for just over two months. He left here and went to Scott City, Kansas to see his other sister and her family.

We were all so thankful for the good times we had so recently. I will always think of him as my son who had a smile and a good word for everyone.

He didn’t know a stranger. I could go on forever but had best close this and get it in the mail.

Thank you again for caring!
Sincerely, Virginia Elliott and family.
