Your mother was a loving, patient and kind person whose indelible presence will be missed at family gatherings in the future.
I knew your Mom, Mrs. Snabes, as not only a family member and friend, but also as a devoted pen pal. Through the years we exchanged postcards and hand-written notes full of updates on travels, family news, current events and helpful advice. Mrs. Snabes' no-nonsense approach to writing revealed the best aspects of her Midwestern sensibilities: her down-to-earth humor, humble nature and tenacious commitment to family. In her letters, Mrs. Snabes often remarked that few things gave her more pleasure than relaxing with "her boys" on Higgins Lake.
You and your brothers have proved to be exemplary sons, making absolutely sure that your mother was well taken care of until the end of her life. Now she is reunited with Ron in heaven, laughing and sharing memories of being together with the entire Snabes family on the restful shores of Higgins Lake.
