My most prized possession is an intangible that I can leave to neither family. This is the joy that I have known as your mama and grandmother. You have all been so forgiving of the many mistakes I have made down through the years. For this I thank you from the bottom of my heart. The loving and thoughtful concern that both families have shown has been my stay through the sorrows that we have borne together. All I can wish for you is that your children will be as kind and loving, with the warm relationship that we have enjoyed. The spontaneous giving of love, time, and effort and all your thoughtful care has enriched my life. I could never have made it alone!

God Bless and my love to you all,


Written by Alice Remmen (wife of Emil Remmen) shortly before her death, to families of her daughters Patricia and Elizabeth.
