Dear McAllister Children, My mother Orrilla Larson was a good friend of your mom's through the Parker School PTA and Scouts. My twin brothers, Joe and Jesse Larson, were friends of yours, Kevin and Shawn. When you girls were born, Penny, Pam and Paula, I wasn't old enough to babysit you three alone, but I loved to come over to your house and watch you while your mom was doing housework or cooking supper. I'll always remember your mom's smile and what a good mother she was to all six of you. May God wrap his arms around you and give you comfort and peace in the days, weeks, and months to come.
