I’m very sorry for your loss of your Mom & Grandmother.
I remember her like yesterday, beautiful smiles & fun memories by the lake.
Your Mom was a sweet lady.
Jordan your grandmother was over the moon every time she sees you her face would lit up like a Christmas tree . I can’t believe how much you’ve grown up Jordan !
She’s now your Angel will always watch over you wherever you go. (Hugs)
Sending you prayers & love. Take care.

Scott and Jordan,
I just found out about your mother and grandmother and I am so sorry to hear about your lost. I am sure she will still be watching over you both because she would not want to miss out on anything.
I have missed her visits to the lake I just loved her happy smile and the way her eyes light up when she talks.
I know she will be terribly missed but you have some great memories because she was one happy happy person .

Scott, Jordan, Larry,

I am so sorry about Dolly. She was special with her radiant smile and sense of humor. There was never a dull moment when she was around. I will always remember her doing the zip line and how she liked to joke with Earl. She will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time.
