    We are sorry to hear that Aunt Fern has passed away,  As some of you children may know, Aunt Fern was my favorite aunt.  Several years ago we had the pleasure of picking her up at home and driving with us to New Mexico where we spent the night with Tom and Bonnie.  The next stop was our home in Mesa, Arizona where she spent several days with us. These are memories we will always have of her.  May God bless you all at this time.

    Bonnie and I extend our sympathies to all of my sister's children and their spouses.  Fern and Donald raised great kids and it shows with the depth of love and care you all showed your Mom.  I'm so proud of all my nieces and nephews!

    Fern and I were close and I loved her very much and I will miss her greatly.  I loved going to visit my sister as she made sure that the welcome mat was always out, that love and laughter were never in short supply, favorite pies were baked and plenty or cucumbers and onions were always available.  All my favorites!!

    We're sending loving thoughts, hugs and prayers to all of you.  Your Mom, my sister, will be missed!

    Tom and Bonnie Clausen
