    Dearest Seversons:

    Please know that even though I am far away my heart is with you all. Memories of the Severson kids have been flooding my mind over the past week. The Cabin; swimming in Kimball lake; Deer hunting; Thanksgiving, and many, many more. Red was 7 months older than me. He was there for my 1st horse encounter: “Oakey is not going to bite you. Just hold your hand flat”. When we were about 9, we polished off a quart of pickles Ramona had just made. Both of us got sick. We were just the Cox and Severson kids playing together. Memories of Red will always be among my happiest.

    My sincerest condolences to Val and family, and to the Severson kids: Gary, Sandi, and Ron.

    Love from Diane, one of Cox kids.
