    My condolences on the passing of your mother. I remember fondly the work I did for your family when I was in college. I never knew what task your parents wanted done on any given day. One day it was shoveling the horse barn and the next day it was cleaning the pool and diving for your lost earrings. What an interesting summer! I hope all is well with Joel and the kids.

    Ann, Joel and family
    We were saddened to read the passing of your Mother. I know she is now in a better place and is at peace. May you know our thoughts are with you. You for years have gone above and beyond the call of a daughter to be by your Mother’s side. We realize this will be a void but understand she was given a good life by her husband and family. Again we are thinking of you at this time.
