To all who knew/loved June:

My deepest and sincere condolences to all June's family/friends especially Crystal & Arta. For those who know the "Oh my heart" story, one of my favorite stories to tell as a young man, it now aches deeply. She was indeed a one of a kind mother in law! She could give me the evil eye with a huge hug at the same time. God Speed your peace!

Bob Miller, Corona-CA.
