Fred, Am sorry to hear that you won't be in the area during that time
period, but think that you will have a wonderful trip to Salt Lake. Will
you take time to do research as well. There is a woman from here that
goes out there with her husband and their RV and spends months at a time
doing research. Her name is Lois and right now can't think of her last
name. Any chance you will be passing through OKC on either your way out
or way back. Would love to visit. I don't mind that you tell the group
except my Mom was not the Sackett. My Dad descended from the Sacketts.
Am sorry that you may have to have another angioplasty. Hope that you
don't have to. Got to go Linda

It has been a long time. As I think that you know, since last June my
mother has been living with us in OK. She just couldn't cope with
living by herself after my Dad died. She was doing real well
considering she had heart problems. Well, she had one heart valve that
was closing and one that was leaking and they gave her less than 6
months. She elected to have heart surgery. Came thru beautifully and
did extremely well for three weeks. Then was moved to another facility
to start rehab. At that point other things started to go wrong. She
died on Aug. 8, 2 days before her 89th birthday.
Gordon and I are going back to Longmeadow over the Labor Day weekend as
we are having a grave side service at the Pine Hill Cemetery on Sept. 4
at 2 p.m. She will be buried next to my Dad.
Wondered if you would be up there at the time as would look forward to
seeing you again. So far you have never gotten our way.
Nancy Longmeadow is just south of Springfield Mass.
