    Dear Aunt Marcella,

    I so will miss our daily telephone conversations.

    Always was fun to talk about things from the past.

    When I was just a teen ager I thought it so wonderful that you and Uncle Dale took me to your home for a week to visit.

    Love you

    We love you and we will miss you greatly.
    She loved “all 12 of us” she use to say, even though we topped out at 6. All twelve of us are going to have a permanent void in our hearts now that you’re gone.
    Love & Hugs,
    John, Angela, Alyssa, Emily, Joni & Johnny Deckard
