Jim & Vernae,
Our deepest sympathy to you and all of you family for your loss. I know how difficult these last years have been at times and the sadness it brings, imagining life without your mother. She lived a good, long life and was quite a role model. Remember the goodness she brought to many and hold onto your memories. Your mother will always be with you. Thinking of you and your family,
Chip & Barbara Wilde

To the family of Gordon and Helen Felt
I just want you to know how much both Gordon and Helen were loved by all the people who worked with Gordon at the Brigham Medical Clinic. Also the Utah State Society of Medical Assistants sends their condolences both Gordon and Helen were great supporters of these medical assistants.They were loved and will be missed by many.
My deepest condolences to Mrs. Felt's children and grand children. Mrs. Felt and Dr. Felt were so welcoming and generous to me when I came to this country as a foreign student and later on. They (and their family) provided for me a home and support when I arrived in this country and thereafter. I'll always miss them and and think of them as the most graceful and generous couple i have ever known.
