Some pictures of your relatives at Glady's funeral in Two Harbors

 Bill's girlfriend, Diane.  I worked with her aunt Sue at the 1st Nat'l. bank many moons
ago.   Your cousin Bill with his Aunt Diane!
Heather and Hailey with Bill's daughter Stephanie.  She works for NBC in Chicago.
 Jim and Jen with me at the Cloquet cemetery.  Jim has cancer on his face, his right side.
He also had same on the left side and it is all cleared up.  He is treating it with some type if salve.  He had Hodgkin's Lymphoma many years ago.

Brothers Jim and Bill.  Bill is 4 years older.  We were going to Perkins with Jen and she
invited Jim to join us.  Am so glad she did.  We covered numerous subjects.  I got 2
plants in one basket, one blooming and the other green.  Told them they can have their
pick.  In the sympathy card I wrote some memories starting when I was about 7 or 8
visiting Bill and Glady in Virginia when "Billy" was a baby, other memories through the
years and ending with our last 3 visits to see Glady at the Barross Cottage in Two Harbors.  On the first of those, without me asking she started naming our children.
When she said, "Ivan", she asked, "Am I through?"  Told her one more and she named
Jennifer.  The next time she again started naming our children but got stuck on Frans and when I supplied that she continued to the end.  Perhaps on our last visit she didn't
even recognize us.  I told that to the person working and she asked if I was Gladys'
niece and said no, her sister-in-law.  So ends another chapter of my life.

Sure, help yourself to pictures.
We have to get some on a CD and have pictures printed for Bill, Jim, Stephanie and Shannon.

Thanks for posting pictures. I'm with Charlie, would have been nice to be there.

These life's chapters just seem to flip by faster and faster sometimes.

I have fond memories of visiting Two Harbors.
