    Stella and Family
    We felt it best if We did not try to be with You during this difficult time. Wilma did not think She was able to make the trip up there and back, and She did not want Me to make the trip by Myself,thinking that I might not make it back to Her. She seems to need more help with the daily tasks of life than She did before Her stroke.We’re thinking of You and I think You know We love You and Your Family and We’ll remember Him like He was when We saw Him just before last Christmas.
    With Love, Preston and Wilma
