It is with great sadness that I am paying my condolences. Tammy, I know how proud your mom was of you. I have many found memories of her accompanying you on bank trips and teller banquets. She was a class act and will be missed. Karen Stuck

Pam, Tammy, and Mark, I am so sorry for the loss of your precious Mother. She was a very special lady! I would tell you that it will get easier with time, but it really doesn't. I do hope that all of your sad memories of her during her illness will fade and in time be replaced by all of the wonderful memories you have. You three have each other and she will always live on in each of you.
