    Dear Family, It’s been many long years since I’ve seen most of you and several since I’ve seen Jim, Gene and George. I have many fond memories of times my Mom (Evelyn) and Dad (Lawrence) brought us to visit Uncle Carl and Aunt Violet, Jackie and all of you. Larry, Donna and I always loved coming to visit. We were so sorry to hear about Aunt Violet’s passing. I’m afraid I won’t be able to make the funeral but I will be praying for you all!
    Love Denny Morris
