Condolences to the Family

Harry, Linda, and Barbara,
My sincere condolences on the passing of your Mother. Memories of so many years ago came flooding back when I heard of her passing. Even though she lived a long life, the loss of a parent is always difficult. I can’t remember when the last time we were together, but unfortunately I will not be able to be at the service. May you find peace and comfort in the days ahead.
John B Ewell
