I remember meeting your mother at Laura’s holiday brunch. Beautiful women with an amazing spirit and a warm smile. I often saw her at church with your dad. So sweet to see them together, such great example for the generation of today to follow. She was always so kind and friendly towards me. I will remember her fondly. My condolences to the entire family.

Laura and Rosann, I am so sorry to hear of her passing, I know the pain of losing a parent, the days get better but the empty part in your heart will remain. Comfort yourself in the memories you shared and never forget her love for you.

Your friend, Olga xxxx/oooo
