    I am truly sorry for your loss.  Your family will be in my prayers during this difficult time.  I have good memories of your family from Hudson Iowa and babysitting you three girls.  And the times at Walnut Ridge Baptist Church before my parents moved. 

    Your former babysitter, Sharon Bennink
