Praying for you all!

To the entire Young Family. We were so sorry to hear about Maureen. The years have passed too quickly and she is gone much too soon. We have so many memories of time spent with your Mom, as well as your Dad, and the family they are too numerous to express but will forever be cherished in our hearts.

We are sorry we cannot be with you at this sad time but know you are in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers.

With deepest sympathies,

Susan Oberst and Pat Regetz
