To all the family, I extend my heartfelt sympathies. I visited with her last summer when she was in CLR. She was still very much aware of things and we had pleasant conversations. I can still remember as a little girl going to the family farm with my dad and brothers and sisters to visit. Your mom was always busy and would have delicious things baking! She helped around the farm and I remember being very impressed by that. She lived a long life and I will pray for her peace and yours.

With deepest sympathy,
Your cousin
Sandy and Family
