Dear Shirley: I was so sad to learn of Aunt Lola's passing, but how lucky you all were to have her for 100 years! While it has been many years since our childhood days of running around Uncle Fred's and Aunt Lola's farm, I still remember those days, and their warmth, so fondly. My thoughts are with you and all the other relatives today. I hope the loving memories help you all through this sad time. Your cousin, Barbara
