Cecil & Sharon Narem(daughter) ran into Damen and Angeline in a cafe outside Fedora or Howard about 2 or 3 years ago. It was so nice to be able to say hello to old friends.
Our sympathy to the family.

I will always remember the pick up ride s and eating out with you and Angie. Those where great times and memories. We will always miss you and love you and Angie very much. Some day we will meet again and drive around to explore new places.
