    To Janet, Arden, Diane and Darilyn; I was sad to hear of your Mom’s passing. Wow, what a long life she had. It doesn’t matter how long we have our parents, it’s still hard and a great loss. She was the last of the Lone Star school Mother’s club! Remember those days? A really long time ago for all of us. I know your memories of her will bring you joy and peace. I’m thinking of each of you and praying for you now and in the days ahead.

    We want to add our sympathy and caring thoughts. Such a beautiful photo of your Mom–and yes to echo Phyllis what a long life journey. Jane and I explored the roads and school site this past summer with relatives visiting form out state —They had gone down the little road to that school with our brothers so long ago just to explore. So much changed–how many miles were walked and we cut through Erickson’s pasture when we could to shorten the trek!
    Blessing to you all and prayers for your family. Jean Christen (Palmen) and Jane Mattson (Palmen)
