    So sorry to read about your Mom’s death in the paper today. I know my parents (Art and Alice Lenzen)send their love and sympathy to all of you. My mom enjoyed any time that she spent with Rufina and if she would have driven more it would have been more often I am sure. They have many great memories of their visits over the years. Please accept our symathy at this time of your loss. So sorry we did not know in time to attend the service. I know my parents would have been there. Sincerely, Sue Hart
