To the Coxen family. So sorry to hear of you father's passing. He was married to one of my best school mates, and I also sang at their wedding. Before entering the St. Luke Living Center I would stop by and visit with them, usually around high school reunion time but they hardly ever came.
Always enjoyed visiting with Donna Jean and Alan and now they are back together again. Wish I could come to the service but it is a busy day here.
I will be thinking of you all on Friday. May God grant you all peace and also joy, knowing you had such a wonderful father. Sincerely, Lois Erickson Winter
