Dear Ethel,

Thank you for taking 4 teenagers to the beach in Maine and to the White Mountains all those years ago. Thank you for your patience as I know we sure gave you a hard time, especially when we body surfed down the rapids. I can't remember your expression when we came walking back soaking wet but I am sure it was priceless. As we grew older and had our own families you always remembered us on Christmas with a small gift. You were a good friend to my Mom and I know she enjoyed her time with your. May you be at peace and rest dear Ethel after your long hard battle.

Karen our thoughts are with you as you mourn the loss of your beloved mother.

Love Shirley & Bill
