  4. I am so sorry that you have to go through loosing both your parents in such a short time and please know that I am thinking of you and praying that you will get some comfort in knowing that they are both together now and they are much better off eventhough we miss them so very much. Please take care of yourself and let me know if I can be of any help at all as I am able to get around some since I got my stitches out yesterday. Love and hugs Sharon

  5. We will always remember the times when Arlene & Kenneth would come to visit Thelma & Joe. We especially enjoyed the story telling and the singing of songs from their childhood days. We offer your family our deepest sympathy on the passing of your parents in such a short time. Please keep in contact via e-mail and we will contact you when we come to Pueblo later this Summer.
    Sincerely:
    Diana & Tony Clark
