|Dear Ford, Dr. Rita Ellsworth, Sue Ocken and family,|
We have fond memories of Marjorie. She and Hank showered us with encouragement and praise as we raised our four children in Lamar. We send our sincere sympathy and prayers for you at this time of her passing.

For the family of Marge Andersen - I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She and my mom, Martha Kerr, were P.E.O. sisters and dear friends. I have fond memories of your mom when she worked with your dad at the dental office he and Dr. Eichler shared. Your mom was a true lady, with a gentle spirit and a kind heart. She was always concerned about others. When my mother was ill, Marge often came by to visit or drop off a dish of food. I know you will miss her, but I pray that your faith and your memories provide comfort.

|Dear Ford and Sue,|
I am very sad to learn of your mother's death. I was in Lamar last October and we had nice chat by phone.
Both your mom and dad were very special to me. While growing up and even after I left Lamar they were very
interested in what I was doing and wanted to know all about my family. I will remember them both fondly.
My best to you both.
|For Marge Anderson-|
I always enjoyed seeing Marge in Dr. Benton's Lamar office. She was such a dear person, and never spoke badly of anyone. She and Hank were one of my favorite couples. She is now with Hank and I can see them smiling at each other. May God Bless you all.
