      Dear Hattie and family,
      In the coming days, I hope you will be comforted by a soft whisper of hope. It might be very faint at first, but may it remind you that the sweet life you shared will never leave you. It is a treasure kept safe within your heart.

    My sympathy to the family. Oh, beautiful Hattie Faucett was the girl my half-brother, Ralph Schenke had a crush on back in the day, when they were all “the group” that included, Amos, Coba Craig and Ralph’s cousin Gary and all the others. They were 8 years older than me and I respected all of them. Ralph passed a couple of years ago, but with an 8th grade education, he worked a Union job and was very successful also doing skilled work in electrical and repairs.
