Dear Scott and Marc:
We are so very sorry about your precious mom! It's hard to find the right words to say, your mom was amazing, and loved, she will never be forgotten. Our kids called your mom and dad "Oma and Opa." The first time they met them there was an instant feeling of love that will never be forgotten! I remember how your mom made the newspaper crossword puzzle look so easy!! Scott, we have known your family since we were 5, walking a mile to kindergarten together in Sault St. Marie Michigan! I have cherished memories of those days and the deep loving friendship of our parents! I believe with all my heart that they are all together now enjoying each other once again, I picture their reunion was happy and full of love. Scott and Marc, we love you and your family very much. Thank you for having the very best mom!!
Love you always!!
Willie and Kathy
