Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Denny,

John and I are so sorry to hear about Ida Lee. I have asked so many times about her and wish I had been more thoughtful.

John remembers her as a sweet lady who way always kind to him.

I told him I remember all the good times we would meet in Amana Iowa with your mother and dad and Jewell and Madeleine when we had the RV. We would laugh and tell stories all night.

Ida Lee was the one who taught me to make gravy without lumps. I'll always remember her with a smile on my face.

Aunt Barbara
