  7. Brenda and Rae Lynn and family, I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Barb’s passing. I will always remember the summer days visiting her (and the dogs, goats, and bull). The swing was the best swing a kid could ask for! Know that we will always remember the good times in our hearts and that the family is in our thoughts and prayers.

  11. Dear Rae Lynn, Brenda and Sara,

    The sad news that your mother has died is a great shock. Ernie and I
    are deeply saddened and I write this with a heavy heart.

    We know how close you were and what a loving relationship you shared with
    your mother. Jan’s voice always lit up when she spoke about her
    family and brother Larry – it was easy to see you all meant the world
    to her.

    Jan had a dear and positive spirit. I could never thank her enough or
    express in words how much I appreciated what she, Roy and you (and
    Larry) did for Dave continuously over the years.

    We have lost a very special woman. She will always remain close in my
    heart. At this difficult time, please know how much we care.

    Jan was so proud of you all – and knew she was loved.

    Ernie and I send our prayers and deepest sympathy to you and your
    family.

    Warmly,
    Donna Salomon

  13. I know this is a difficult time for your family and I hope during a quiet moment you find solace in the reassurance that is found in the bible at Rev 21:4 it says ‘And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more… The former things have passed away.’
