Unable to attend services due to the snowy weather, but wanted to send my prayers and sympathy to my Yates family. I remember as a youngster Bertha and Kay taking me roller skating. It was my first time and I'm sure I did not do well. although the trip was very much appreciated. Always loved visiting with the family.
