I am so sorry to hear of Ella June's passing...and that Zane had passed some time before. Mom & dad, Helen & Don Curry, were great friends with Ella June & Zane. Mom was a member of Eastern Star for many years also. Even after Mom's passing, Zane was so faithful to stop and "shoot the breeze" with dad, whether at our family home, or even if he was in a hospital. I will never forget their friendship. Please feel free to contact me (fyijohn@earthlink.net). God bless you and your families. Barb (Curry) Nolte
