  1. Carol, Diana and Terry: We think of both your parents with love and appreciation. After our dad died, they continued to include our mother in "Friday night fish fry" and evening visit for cards, cake and coffee. It meant much to Joan and me that they continued to include her even though she was no longer part of a "couple." We were shocked by the news, but realized we hadn't seen your parents since my mother's funeral 18 months ago. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all and for your contined support for the care of Fred. With fond memories, Joanie joins me in sending our condolences. Gail Wightman-Bouldin
