Sending Prayers of sympathy for the lost of your Mom. I know how you will miss her.
Our sincere sympathies at the loss of your mom. It is hard I know, My mom has only been gone a little over a year. You took great care of her and I’m sure she loved all of you dearly. May she be at peace now and rest with the Lord. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Take Care and know that your friends are there for you.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I will always fondly remember your Mom. She was always very welcoming and friendly towards me during my many, many hours spent at your house as a teenager. There will be a special place waiting for her in heaven. Love.
Mike, Wende, Lori, and Sue,
Your family was a very welcome addition to the 200 block of the west side of Ruby Street back in the 1960’s, and I remember your mother as she was at that time.
My condolences on the loss of your mother. May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of the joyful times you spent with her as you celebrate a life well lived.
Gail Young (your neighbor @ 216 Ruby Street)
