    Alvin and Family,
    I was so saddened to read in the Aitkin paper of your loss of your mother. Please know how sorry I am and that I am thinking of you and your family. My mother always heard from your mom at Chritmas time until just the last few years, and she looked forward to hearing from her.

    I heard of my cousin Ella’s death from my brother, Rodney. On one of my last visits back to West Fargo, I was able to drive to McGrath with my Mom, Mabel, and we had a wonderful visit with Ella. Your family is in my prayers.
