    Debbie – I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. We had great fun with both your Mom and Dad way back when at the Elks Club. I remember your Mom being so pretty – you remind me of her a lot, and I remember your Dad playing the old slot machines, smoking a cigar. Hold on to your memories and your Mom and Dad will always be with you.

    Debbie and Margie and families,
    I am so very sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. I know it’s a very difficult time for you right now. I wished there was something I could do to take away the pain and sorrow you are feeling now. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
    Your mom was an amazing woman whose smile and encouraging words always made a difference. I remember the support she and your dad gave my family when we lost our dad. Sharon and Alan were always so good to my family and even looked out after Aunt Earlean.
    May god be with you all during this time.
