  3. Dear Kate and Family,

    Our sincere condolences to you and your family on the news of your Mothers passing. She certainly had a long and I’m sure a wonderful life.

    Some of my brother Mike’s and my earliest memories are of our parents friendship and family get-togethers. And of course, your mom was a dear and long-time friend of my Dad – Ernest. They loved talking about their school days growing-up in Timnath, CO. In his last years, I would take dad for a drive to visit Timnath. He would rush to call your mom as soon as we returned to give your mom a report on what remained of the old town.

    I enjoyed talking with your mother when I got the chance in my parent’s last years. I always got a kick-out of her laugh and insight
    into my Dad.

    Best wishes to you and your family!

    Vincent Ulibarri
