"I send my deepest sympathy. The Fergusons (and June Lee) were a great part in my childhood with wonderful memories. Tamar was born when I was in fourth grade and June Lee and I were best friends through our elementary years. Thora and Cleo my parents friends. I have often thought of how wholesome and safe our young years were and how much Thora's influence shaped my life. She was the best. Much love to you. Betty Lee"
