My sincere condolences to all of the family. I will remember "Mom" always, I spent more time at your home during my Highschool years than my own home. Both of your parents were very loving and caring. I enjoyed many hours of playing cards with her.

My condolences to the family. I'll always remember the patience she showed us as kids visiting your house. And your dad picking us up after school! Really great parents you had there.
