My name is Donna Fulk Jackson from Delaware, OH. My parents, Howard & Leona Fulk met Paul and Barb at the Lost Dutchman Mobile Home Park in Apache Junction, AZ. in the 1980s. They became great card playing friends and visited one anothers homes during the summer. I met at least one or two of their daughters when I visited mom and dad at Christmas. I contacted your folks when my parents passed away in 2001 and 2003 but then we lost touch. For the past years I have hoped to locate Paul & Barb but never could. Now during this pandemic I have spent hours sorting through photos and have seen several of your parents. Then I looked through my moms old address books and saw their name and decided to Google Barb. What a surprise and sadness to discover she has just passed away. My condolences to you all. I have very fond memories of playing cards and sharing lots of laughs with Paul & Barb and having New Years Eve dinner at the Mining Camp in Apache Junction. They were just the best friends to my parents during their retirement years. How I wish I could have reconnected with Barb these past few years. No doubt theres a gabby game of Euchre going on in heaven right now.
