I've been blessed to know your mom. I always enjoyed my visits with her when I was in Quincy. Last September she went to Salem with me on Sunday morning and I know she usually went on Sat. night, but she wanted to see me and said she would sit with me. I called her a few weeks ago and she said she was getting weaker, but we still had a nice visit. She and my parents were friends and I remember visiting your farm when I was a child. She and Grant came to my dad's (Ray Harland) memorial service. She was a wonderful person with a beautiful smile. I will miss seeing her on my Quincy visits.

The high light of out family visits to the Quincy/Marblehead area was to see "Aunt Doris" at the farm. Our children loved to wander the building, sit on the equipment and of course sample her baked goods. We will all miss her.

Dear Lepper family,
What a pleasure it has been to know your mother, father and whole family! Your mother was an elegant lady who was an immediate friend of all she met. While she shared a birthday with Fern, we thought of her many other days. Your mother and dad made a difference in the lives of many friends.
May God's Blessings and your own vivid memories bring comfort as you continue to honor a long and wonderful life.

Dear Aunt Dot, You've left me with so many fond memories of childhood. Overnight stays sleeping upstairs, drinking milk right from the cow, tractor rides on Uncle Grant's lap, playing in the grain bins, spins down the hill in the old tractor tires, long joyful hours playing with the toy tractors and combines on the floor in your family room, and feasting on your wonderful home cooking with all the family. I am so thankful for the opportunity to see you last summer. Even then, you cooked us dinner. You were the perfect hostess. Thank you for the times I now hold dear. Please send my love to those already in heaven including Aunt Toots, Gram, my mom and Aunt Janet. With much love, Beth
