  2. Harlan and Family : So sorry to hear about your loss. Prayers are with you. Your cousin Kathy Diede-Hoff

  3. Way back in 1957 I and my roommate Sandy lived in Tuve Hall across from Maedora and Bonnie when we were attending Augie. One thing I remember about her is how neat everything was. It seemed she even spaced the hangers in the closet. I now volunteer at the Dougherty Hospice House on Friday mornings. I think I just missed her admit to the Dougherty House by an hour or so a week ago. If I had known she was there, I would have come to visit. We came so close to connecting again. I am so sorry for your loss, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

  4. Harlan and Family!
