  4. Dear Kathy, Cindy and Jeff, Your mothers passing just breaks my heart as I have so many fond memories as a young child hanging out at your house. I remember she was always dressed so beautifully and always had the prettiest red lipstick on (funny how you remember these little things as a kid)and the sweetest, friendliest laugh. I pray God brings peace, comfort and healing to you three as well as your family.
    With sincere love,
    Jodie Johannes
