Dear Patty, Diane, Mary and Tom,

Your mother was a lovely person who cared passionately for her family. She was so proud of each of you and her grandchildren. She had such a strong faith that she surely is with those who have gone before her. I have many fond memories of time spent with her, especially in Disneyland, one of her two favorite places, the other being Leland, MI. You will miss her, but your many good memories will be a comfort during this time of loss.

Love, Lee
