Dear Jan & Jeff,

The memories I have of all the years living across the street from you, the Dartmen polka dances, the picnics, etc. are so precious. They take me back to a happy time. "Uncle" Mike and "Aunt" Lil were like a second set of parents to me. I have no doubt the two of them are back together again dancing their way around heaven. You did such an amazing job taking care of him for so long. My heart goes out to you. Love, Bev

Mike was my Chicago boyfriend. Yes, we joked around about that, but I really did like Mike a lot. I wish I had the opportunity to spend even more time with Mike and the Gabriel family. I am thankful for the visits from them here in Billings and the trips I did make to Chicago. My favorite memories include the various celebrations and especially dancing. Right now I hope Mike does know he was my favorite and I know he is dancing in Heaven.
