    Dear Aunt Pat,
    I just found out this morning about Uncle E.M. from mother. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We would like to make a donation to Shriner’s in Uncle E.M.’s name. Our youngest son just had extensive leg surgery at the facility here in Portland, OR and we had no idea what an amazing organization the Shriner’s are. We wanted to clear it with you first. We also wanted to know if there was any title/chapter, etc. we should include. I adored Uncle E.M. and wish my children had known him. Funny and kind don’t begin to describe him! Again, our love and prayers to you.
    Wendy Widseth Wozniak and family

    We were so saddened to hear of your fathers passing this morning. Lean on your friends for strength, and always remember how much you are cared about. May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared with your daddy, comfort you now and in the days ahead.
    We Love You!~
