Dear Billy, MIke, Dawn LaRae and families,

My sincere condolences at your mother's recent passing. Although it has been many years since I last saw Aunt Coda (or any of you), I was aware of her declining health.

May you find peace and comfort in happy memories of her.

Aunt Coda - what a blessing you were in my life. You spoiled your brother Floyd, my dad. You always opened up your home to us whenever we visited. Your beauty and grace will always be a cherished memory! Sending love and prayers to Bill, Kathy, Mike, Shelley, Dawn LaRae and their families!!

Dear Christensen Family, I was deeply sadden learning the passing of Coda. When I started to work at Grand Central Grocery in 1958 Coda taught me how to become a good checker. She was the best. She sheltered me and protected me from all the bully's and taught me about the grocery business. May she be blessed and be at peace. She was the best.
