This is being sent on behalf of Jane and myself. We just learned of your Mother&s death this week-end when I received a copy of the obituary from Annie Westerham.
What a long life your beautiful Mom had - 97! Those years on Kelly Avenue sometimes seem like yesterday. Picking your Mom up in the mornings in our 1940 Chevrolet with the running boards, your Dad of course, Taffy, when your parents remodeled their living room using a professional interior decorator and Marion singing at my Dad&s funeral. I also remember seeing her in San Diego years ago when my Mom was still alive. Doris must have loved having all those grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Sorry this is late but we did want to send our condolences and tell you both we&re thinking of you. It was good to see you at that reunion some years ago, Shirley. We try to get to Cloquet once a year to see our 94 year old aunt who is still living in Esko. I&m going in October.
Please except my heartfelt sympathy in the passing of your Mother/Grandmother. Mrs. Bishop was my fourth grade Math Teacher at Garfield School in Cloquet, Minnesota. I absolutely adored her. I have thought of her often over the years. I admired and respected her so much. I will always remember the gentle way she had with the children. I can still picture her standing in front of the class. She certainly wasn&t a pushover though. She was tough when she needed to be.
There are only a few people that leave a mark on your life. She was definitely one of those people for me. I am so very sorry for your loss.
Again, my condolences to the family. I know she will be missed.
Please accept our heartfelt sympathies on the loss of your Mom. We deeply regret being unable to be with you for the memorial service on Saturday, as we have a previous commitment in Chicago this weekend.
You have been an example of love and commitment, and shown us what family is about.
Rosemarie & Hilary
