Just heard the sad news of the passing of June, so very sorry to hear of your
loss. Denver was a cousin to my dad- Ronald E. Wasnich from Osseo, MI. My
dad thought highly of Denver and June. I saw Denver and June frequently
when they were up to Michigan and visited my parents. I did tell my father
and he sends his sympathy, also. He is 96, so the trip to Middlebury is out of
the question, even though he is doing fairly well. Our thoughts and prayers
are with your family at this sad time. May your memories give you strength.

you a big hug! June was a great lady, very sweet and the pro at discovering
treasures at garage sales!
