  1. J.C., just wanted you to know
    we are thinking of you, and certainly know what a difficult time this is for you. Love, Beverley & Carroll

  2. J. C. and Margo and family,
    I know so well how mixed your feelings are at this time. There is sorrow, but also relief that your mother’s decline is over and she is at rest. You two have been so caring and loving with her through all of her health problems and it is hard to let her go.
    You will be in my prayers and thoughts through the coming days and weeks.

  3. My sympathy to the whole family. Molly was loved at Brooks Howell. She told me all the time how much she loved her family and what a wonderful son and daughter-in-law she was blessed with. She will be missed. Love in Christ, Karen
