Condolence From: Clint Gitchel, Howard City, Mi.
Condolence: Dear cousins, I'm so sorry we can't be there with you but know that our hearts are there.
I have great memories of my childhood when Uncle Wally and Aunt Jo and you guys would come to visit. I have a vivid picture of Uncle Wally playing his bass with his eyes half closed and his bottom lip stuck out and Dad next to him playing his tenor guitar.
Your Mom had a way of making me feel special just by the way she said Clinton Lee, I can hear her voice just like it was yesterday. She once said I was her favorite, I've always hung on to that. With love, God Bless. Clint.

Condolence From: Judy Malley (Gitchel), Ypsilanti, Michigan
Condolence: Dear Cousins, My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to you. I still remember fondly how Uncle Wally and Aunt Jo would come to visit my father Robert, in Portage, Michigan. Once Wally brought his scale model, remote-control sail boat to show us. We took turns steering it around West Lake. Aunt Jo, was a dear, sweet lady! She suggested they borrow a Barbie Doll, to make it look real! I'll always be grateful for her acts of kindness. On the morning after my mothers funeral (Joyce) she took me out for hot cocoa and donuts. She introduced me to her little fluffy-white dog, and let me pet and cuddle her. She seemed to understand how I needed a bit of TLC. We've all been blessed by her life, and I wish you the best of all the happy memories our time with Jo provided. Best wishes always, Judy Malley
