    Dear Johnny,Sandy, Susy, Carl, Stanley and Family,
    I have been thinking of you all since reading about your Mom. Growing up just around the corner from you on Delta County Road 428, we rode the bus together, went to games at Perkins High School and more. Our parents went to school together at Rapid River High School (Lawrence and Cleo Langford Wils)!!

    I always admired your Mom/Gram and hold you all in my thoughts and prayers. Take good care.

    What a dear sweet soul Irene was. I knew her from the Gladstone senior Center. Just a little Ball of Energy. I always enjoyed our little chats together. Love to see her dancing at the amvets. She was a great little lady. Now she can dance in Heaven with her favorite partners.
