    • Dear Mary, Sarah and Kathryn,
      I was very sorry to hear the news of your beloved father/husband’s passing. I did not find out until today, that I could leave my condolences here on this very special website, for your loss.

      Although I regret not getting to spend more time with your father (my uncle), in my childhood, during the time I resided in Adams and Lincoln, NE; I nevertheless have incredibly good memories of him and how kind he was to me. I also, sent my heartfelt sympathy in the form of a special card to your Aunt/Sister-in-law Gaile Goodin of Shreveport (my mother). I am very relieved to be able to finally reach you with the same sentiments.

      Margaret E. Lockhart (Mel)
