    Page, I am saddened to learn of Lynn’s passing. She worked for me for a while, and she was totally “by the book.”
    I have always loved your family and I knew them well. John and Ethel were friends with my grandparents, and my Mother. They were wonderful and everyone in town knew them! And Polly and those long beautifully painted fingernails. Growing up when she lived on 5th Street, we saw her often
    Ruth Carson and I played in Bridge Club together and we also dyed each other’s hair!
    Bobby, Ralph and Ruth were so talented and everyone enjoyed their music. My favorite song “Misty” was what I always looked forward to when we went to the dances where they played. Whenever I hear it, I always think of Ruth Carson.
    I did not know that Lynn had been fighting Cancer. We wern’t in touch very much after she moved to Virginia Beach.
    Love and sympathy to you.

    Page,
    I am so sorry to hear of Lynn’s passing. I know this has been a tough year for you. Mike updated me briefly on Lynn at the reunion last fall and Cathy Ann shared more news of Lynn after Mike’s funeral. So, you all have been in my prayers for some time.
    Lynn and I shared some great times at WCHS. I can’t remember why we were both in the library so often, but our quiet chatter was such fun. And then there was that whole slice-of-strawberry-pie episode.
    Your mom and I had a cross-generation bond as organists and then you inherited piano duty on the Alma Mater during assemblies, right?
    I hope you find some peace in the days ahead.
    Charlie

    Page, I’m so sorry for your loss. I never knew your sister but I still remember your mother including from when she worked at then-Weavers. I last saw you at J’s Gourmet with her. Call me sometime; I still have records that my father made with him singing solo opera and her accompanying, and both singing duets from operettas . I need to get a record player that will play these 33 or 78 records. Both were small town people, amazing musicians, could have easily gone professional.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you.
