Dear Jack and Family,
What a great privelege it was to have known your Mom! She was such an inspiring person to look up to (the fantastic garden, her participation in our school doings, and all the other interesting ways she was active) yet she was such a comfortable person. I think she loved us all. In the trust that your many wonderful memories will help take away at least some of the sting, know that you are in my heart.

Jack,I am sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a great person and she always made my Dad laugh. It makes me smile to think of the parties that group is having in heaven now.

Sorry for you loss Jack and family. I remember walking by their house on the way to school every morning when I was a youngster and we still lived on Sauk St. She had a good life with her family and all her friends in Darrington.

Jack and family, the passing of your wonderful Mom hits our whole community hard. She and your Father were such a huge part of our community. She was a good friend to my father, Red and his sister Ruth. She was constant in a lot of our lives from childhood on. I walk by their home now and there's no garden, it truly was the very best in town. Her wit and smile will be greatly missed. May all your wonderful memories of her help heal your hearts. You were so blessed to have her as your Mom as we were all blessed to have known her.
