Ingrid, Ed, and Danny,
Was so very sorry to read that your mom passed away. I got to meet her through being a friend to Ingrid. She was a wonderful person, very caring, and she loved her family I do remember that. May God continue to give you His peace and comfort during this difficult time. Losing a parent is a huge loss in our lives, but the memories we have made with them will always remain in our hearts. From Teresa(Kindt) Peters & her husband Scott Peters
