    Heather, I am sorry I did not really understand you on the phone. I do appreciate you calling me regarding your mother. I had not heard from her in ages and was wondering about her.
    Hulda and Curt were our dear friends from DC and many years since that time.
    My heart goes out to you and your brother during this difficult time and may God’s blessings be with you always.
    We did love both of them so much and Hulda will be missed. We spent a lot of time on the phone together.
    Much love to all of you,
    Bette and Kent Kingston
