I am so sorry about Uncle Jim’s passing. I didn’t know until today. I also did not know that cousin Jimmy had already passed away. I hope that you will somehow see this or the funeral home will give you my contact information. I will try to get a snail mail letter to you before too much longer.
Your Aunt Georgia (Jo) Keppen passed away in April 2014. I have old family photos that I wanted to get to you but was not able to get an address for you then.
I hope you get to see and read this and that you are doing good.
