Nancy, Melrow, Chad and Marlena,
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. You have been very fortunate to have you mother and grandmother so long and enjoyed so many good time. Just remember these good times when you are down. May God surround you with his love and grace.
Nancy and Sandra,
I pray that God enfolds and comforts you both in His loving arms during your time of loss. Both your Father and Mother were very special to me, as are you!
Dear Janet, Sandra and Nancy and families,
