To Brenda Gould Winters, and the entire family of Mrs. Alma Peterson Gould,

Please accept my condolences on this sorrowful occasion, as you mourn your mother's passing. May her soul, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

I attended Gary's Bethune Elementary School, from 1957 - 1962; and I was one of your 6th grade classmates, in Mrs. Jessie Rose's class in 1962. I also frequented your mother's penny Candy Store, in Marshalltown, when I lived in Marshalltown Terrace.

Peace and blessings to you and all of your family.
