To Brenda, Gary, Debbie, Deanna, Jim and Gary,
Your Mom was such a great lady, she was a great neighbor, always willing to help whenever she was needed. She was so good to Ma in the past number of years, especially when Da passed away, it was always a great comfort to both Ken and I to know she was there. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I have so many great memories of her, may she rest in peace! Im sure her and Ma are up there sitting at a kitchen table having tea.
