Kathy my sincere condolences are with all of you and your families.

Those we hold dear never truly leave us. They live on in the kindness they showed, the comfort they shared and the love they brought into our lives. May the healing touch of time ease the sorrow you bear now and the memories that you all cherish give you comfort, courage, peace and the strength to move on as you all return to life's routine. May you all continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

What wonderful memories I have of her! A friend and neighbor always nearby when needed. The door was open to her daughters' friends; a contagious smile for everyone and a constant presence within our church. My deepest sympathy to the "girls", their families and the friends who shared her long life. Blessings to all of you. Linda K.
