    Thoughts and Prayers are with your whole family. Your mom and dad will be missed in the neighbor. Any time your dad was out in the yard and he saw me drive by - he ALWAYS waved. Truly will miss this.
    Peace be with all of you.

    Good bye Jack & Letty;
    You will be missed by all.
    You were my Big Brother, Sister and good friends.
    This is indeed a very sad time. To lose such good friends during such a short period. It is an upsetting experience, not just in losing someone you know and love with such finality but also making us
    aware of our own mortality.
    Life is so wonderful; but also can be equally sad.
    Until we meet again!!

    sympathy to you all. (Harry and Treva Scott were the best neighbors ever!

    Jack and Letty were fantastic neighbors for my parents and, after my father's death, my mother. I am grateful for their many acts of kindness and caring over the years. My sincere sympathy. They are
    now together once again. Cindy Mero Raven

    I enjoyed knowing Jack and Letty for over 60 wonderful years spending many summers doing fun activities at Whitefish Lake. It's difficult to comprehend that both of them have left us. I will miss
    them greatly. My deepest sympathy to the family.
