Brett, it’s been 41 years but received the news from Jenny. I wanted to send along my condolences to you. My memories of your Mother are sweet. She always had a smile and seemed to energetically enjoy life. It was heartwarming how she checked on and tended to your grandparents and their relationship was sweet. It was a true blessing living next door to your family and the kindness and friendship that we shared. I know you miss your Mother deeply. I can only imagine. May the Lord comfort and bring precious memories in the years to come. Fondly your neighbor Dorothy Aafedt Debruler
