    Dear family; I know only Peter, Alan and Gary in your family and remember them from the Ossian/Decorah area. How wonderful that you were able to know your mother for such a long time and now you live on memories. Take care and know that old friends (Martha Forde, too) are thinking about you these days. Hope to see you in Decorah sometime. Fondly as always, an old Ossian friend, Jan
