Mark, Kelly, and Kerry,
How sad I am to learn that your mom has passed, yet relieved that she is no longer suffering. I wish you all peace and comfort, as you adjust to this hole in your hearts.

Your mom was one of my first friends when I came to Fillmore in 1968 as a new bride. She and I would hang out together while your dad and Ted bowled every Thursday night. All her life, she had a beautiful softness and sweetness, even in her latter years. She will always be a special person in my heart. Love and prayers to you all.
