I was so sorry to hear of the death of Mr. Shoulars. He was such a sweet and loving man. I have nothing but good memories of the times shared with my family and yours and hope you have found peace during the holidays. With thoughts and prayers, Love, Jo

Steve: I’m still not sure how to do any of the algebra that you taught me (since Mrs. Respess obviously couldn’t) and Mrs. Shoulars, I am in my 27th year of teaching but it’s high school English not math or history. e

Frances and family, we would like to express our sympathy to you in the passing of George. George and I did not see much of each other as I moved to Norfolk at the age of 16 in 1941. I will always be greatful to George for starting the beginning of the Roxobel/Kelford reunions. My wife Ruby and I have been ill now for some time and are so sorry we cannot attend his Service. May God help you in these trying times. Ruby and Julius Shoulars
