I've been thinking about you and your family. What a woman, that Grandma June. A college degree for a woman in the late 30's/early 40's. Impressive.

I'm sorry for your loss.

Hi Alyson:

It's good to hear from you; it's been too long. My Grandma June was a very impressive woman. I miss her and am kind of glad to have missed the funeral. I can mourn alone when I get home.
