Rest in Peace ...

My aunt sent the following obituary ... and I was touched with how Uncle Harold and Aunt Goldie ended up dying in the same month, five years apart, three days difference. As mentioned in my previous post, they were the sweetest couple you've ever seen. I had not realized that they had married on Uncle Harold's birth date! I find it quite interesting that God took them out of this world the same month .... sort of bittersweet (a tear jerker ...).

Love and prayers to all my family in Indiana ... my home state 'til age 22 !!
[FYI: Aunt Goldie was my maternal grandpa's sister]
