Dean- I am so sorry to hear of your loss–and also the loss to your family. I hope you are doing OK. I will always think of you fondly, as you were so kind and helpful to me as a young, green teacher. My thoughts are with you. Marge Gustafson Jenkins
Thinking of Helen and all her family today—she was one of my classmates all through Alabama in grade school and as we graduated from Luck High School in 1951. She was a great, wonderful, fun gal, and we are so sorry to see that she has left us—much sympathy……
