Harry & Barbara,
We never had the privilege of knowing your mom but from all accounts she must have been an exceptional lady. We are so very sorry for your loss. It appears from reading her obituary she lived a very full life. We are so sorry we cannot be there in person to express our condolences but Ken is going through a tough time right now. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family. Love, Ken & Dianne
