I want to express my sympathy to the family of Ethel Messner.. I remember Ethel from grade school. We were in a play together in 7th or 8th grade. I remember Leona Goulet also in that play. Our children are about the same age and we would see each other at clenics now and then. I remember she had a little girl with her that had the most beautiful white hair .May her soul and all the faithful departed rest in peace. Lorraine Beauchamp
