Roy, Troy, so sorry to hear of your moms passing. I guess the gang is all gone from this world and entered into another. Mom and Bud are gone as well. Think about you guys often, we all took care of each other in our little park. Ursula was always a beautiful lady, and seems she was till the end. Again, condolences to you all.

I loved the time that I did get to spend with your mother while she lived at walnut Grove. When she first came to walnut Grove I know that she was the same lady that my mom and I would go to her house and have coffee and German sweets she was so nice.
