  1. My sincere condolences to the Kail family survivors.
    After all those decades and from the many miles across the country I can remember Pauline Kail from my grade school days in Jewett. How names stick with you and frequently the correct faces, from memories of long ago. I hope Mrs. Kail had some wonderful years later in life—my deepest sympathies.

  2. Janet, Judy and family. I was so saddened by the loos of your Mother. She was a sweet, fiesty woman who was wonderful to talk with. I’m so glad that she got to go see my Aunt Georgia Wells in Columbus with me. We had such a nice visit. I’ll remember her fondly.
