Clarence {Hun}, We were so sorry to hear of your loss.  Both of you were such an important part of our life in PA for almost 30 years.  We enjoyed so many years of dancing and square dancing with you and Melba.  Thank you for including us and sharing the firehouse dances and the fairs. We miss those great times. Carol and Charlie

Was very sorry to hear about Melba. She was a good friend and we had many good times together!
