    I want to express my condolences to my cousins Ron, Jim, and Dave on the passing of my Aunt Marietta. I am pleased we have the memory of her vibrance and humor from the time we visited with her a couple of years ago. I also have fond memories of her when I was a child when we visited her and Uncle Vernon at the farm in Arcola. I will miss her, but draw strength from the belief she now is reunited with her husband and brothers and sisters. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. Tip and Claire Kindel
