Dear Karen and Family,
So sorry to hear of Jiggs passing. I know you were a dear friend of Mom's (Marge Clark) and your dear mother and she were long time friends. I will keep you in my prayers Karen. I just got into the RC and saw this. Mom said not too long ago that you had stopped in with some flowers from church for her. She was very pleased.
Keeping you in my prayers,
Connie (Clark) Kelley
