DEAR FRIENDS:

I JOIN WITH THE MANY FRIENDS AND ADMIRERS OF "MA" RIIS IN HONORING HER FOR HER 40 YEARS OF UNTIRING DEVOTION TO OUR VETERANS.

SHE HAS SERVED AS AN INSPIRATION TO ALL WHO KNOW OF HER UNSELFISH DEEDS. THE TOUCHES OF HOME, OF BAKED GOODS AND CLOTHING, HAVE BRIGHTENED THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO SERVED OUR NATION SO ADMIRABLY. THERE ARE MANY WHO NO DOUBT REMEMBER MA'S LETTERS AND PACKAGES SENT TO OUR SERVICEMEN DURING WORLD WAR II.

MA, THANK YOU FOR YOUR RELENTLESS EXAMPLE OF KINDNESS AND CONCERN FOR YOUR FELLOWMEN. YOU ARE TRULY A SHINING, BRIGHT STAR WHOME EACH OF US WOULD BE WELL SERVED TO EMULATE.

YOU ARE TRULY AN INSPIRATION!

SINCERELY
