Beth,Keri,Kristi,Lonnie,Jay and families,
We want to extend our condolences at the loss of your mom.
I remember when you moved to 10th Street and how she seemed to manage all you kids just fine. She now has gone on to be with the ones who have gone on before her. May you find comfort in God's loving arms.
