My condolences to Pat, Mike, Jean, Joan, and Barb. I have many fond memories of Sunday afternoons at the Hunter house with our parents playing cards and the kids running around the neighborhood. Words are difficult at time like this but remembering all the joyous times can hopefully bring comfort.

I am so sorry for the loss of Aunt Katie. She always had a great hug to share. I will miss receiving my birthday and Christmas cards from her-she never missed either occasion. Heaven did gain a very special angel for sure.
Lots of love to Jean, Pat, Mike, Joan, Barbie and families.
