We just heard of your Mom’s passing.  She was a great lady but now is with her Man.  She’ll be missed

Dear Chris, Bo, and Family, I was sad to hear of your mother’s passing so soon after your father. I know she was lost without him, so it’s comforting to think that they are together again. You are ALL in my heart today. Wishing you peace as you spend time remembering all the ways she shaped you and your siblings and her grandchildren into the people you are today. Realizing that you are an adult “orphan” is very sad. Keep them in your memory always.
Love to you, Donna Popo

Our deepest condolences at the loss of your mother.  She, and Dick, were both wonderful next door neighbors, who became friends.  She loved to visit, and always had a smile for us.  She is already missed, but there is comfort in knowing she is with your father.

It is with great sadness that we write this message to Lynne’s family.    We so enjoyed her as our neighbor,  always talking and laughing with people on our street in High Vista.   As a golfer she loved playing the game and the Tuesday Ladies League will miss her smiling face.    Please accept our condolences and know that High Vista will miss her very much.
George Deragon and Jean Strand
