Dear Doug, Liz, Susan, and Laura,

Our parents were the dearest of friends, and I had to write and tell you how I loved your mom and send my deepest condolences to you all. My parents were Martie and Ray Stoneback, and my memories of our mothers' wonderful friendship will always be with me. As a little girl, I remember listening to their phone conversations, wishing that I too would someday have a girlfriend who made me laugh as Dotty did my mom! Your dad was delightful too, and I remember fondly their joy and warmth whenever I saw them.
Please know that my thought and prayers are with you all and your families.
With love,

Lynn Stoneback Segebrecht
