  1. Damon: I was so sad to learn of our mother’s death. We had just reconnected and were sending email to each other and then I heard nothing. I grew up with your mother who lived just across the street in Lynden, Washington. Please contact me when and if you get this. I have a lovely carved box that your grandfather made out of one peice of wood. Sue gave it to me the last time I saw her when she was moving out of her home in Fairhaven. I would love to send it to you if you would like it. I hope you get this, Damon. I remember you as a daling little boy and would love to stay in touch with you! Looking for your reply, Karen (Howell) Miller

  2. Beautiful lady.
