Condolence & Memory Journal

Patsy, so sorry to hear that your mother has passed away. I don't know if you remember me - we haven't seen each other since we were kids - but my folks were Fairy and Merle Fullerton. Merle and Clell always had such a good time when they got together. Bob Fullerton, who has also passed, said he would stop to visit with Opal on his way to Wisconsin.
