I have just recently learned of your mother’s passing and wanted to add my condolences along with those of others. I knew your Grandma and Grandpa Laird as we attended the same Methodist Church in Fairhaven, Ohio. My mother, Ruth Dickerson, was a faithful follower of the Baptist Church in Morning Sun and adored Mary Jo. I understand from my brother, Frank, that she was very ill these last months and I am so sorry for her suffering. I know you are blessed with the memories with which she has left you. Heartfelt sympathy to your entire family.
