    Dear Cousins, Jim and I are thinking of you and wish we could be with you in person to share your loss. Please accept our deepest sympathy and prayers. Aunt Lenora was a very special lady and she touched so many lives with her humor and love. I could always count on her for a funny story. I can almost hear her laugh right now. I am so grateful for the times we stopped to visit with her while on our trips north. She and I had many wonderful phone conversations over the years. I will miss her, too. My love to all of you. Carol
