Dear Deana, Terry and Austin:
We were so sorry to hear of your loss. We remember that your mother was a lovely person with very contagious laugh. You were so fortunate to have had her so close to you for so many years: I know she was a great mother and grandmother. Clearly you learned from her example. Smile when you think of her.
With Love, Mark and Judith McKnew
