Not sure what to say?

Just today I stopped by the house & confirmed what I had suspected, having seen the accumulations of many years being carried from the house...I spoke with Mrs. Holcomb many years ago, & we shared the fun of raising our children in such a wonderful neighborhood. Every season I enjoy that beautifully-blossomed tree in the side yard. Please know that a neighbor will miss her presence. My belated condolences.

What loving memories I have of spending time at your Grandparents(my Aunt Gays) and sharing time with you two at your Moms house. What a wonderful lady she was and loved having the kids around. My sister,Mary, and I stopped by to see her a couple summers ago and she was already in a place known only to her but for a few minutes she recognized us and we took a couple pictures with her. How I treasure those and just want to say being with and knowing your parents and...

Much love to you, Nancy and Tommy, and my deepest sympathy. Your parents were both special and important in our lives. Andy was in their youth group at church and later spent years with them. They remain in my heart and will always. June was especially kind to my family. Prayers to you both.

To The Holcomb family:
I AM so sorry to hear about your mother,a special prayer is offered that God's Blessing will surround you and your family,Because you're very special people,Take care,and may God be with you always.

Dear Tommy and Nancy,
I'm so sorry to learn of the loss of your mother. The photo is just as I remember her from the many wonderful memories of you with your parents and Gay and Kile during family gatherings at the home of my grandparents, Alfred and Mabel. We will always hold these special times close to heart. June will be truly missed although her soft spoken elegance, warm smile, giving heart and generous spirit will always linger within us.
With love,
Carol and Bob

Tommy & Nancy,
My deepest sympathy to you both, and your family. Your mother was loved by so many and she was fortunate to have the two of you caring for her.
Thinking of you with fond memories.

Tommy, I was saddenned to learn of your mother's passing on Monday. I know you and Nancy have had a long struggle. I am thinking about you in your time of grief.

Tommy, I was so sorry about your mother. You have alot of wonderful memories of her that will be with you & comfort you forever. My Prayers and thoughts are with you and Linda.

Tommy - As you know, we LOVED your mother. No doubt about it, the "Leave It To Beaver" character of June Clever was based on June Holcomb! When we were growing up and went to your house, your mother made us all feel at home - usually chocolate chip cookies were involved. She was loved by so many and will be missed. Part of her legacy was a roadmap of a life well lived. The other was you and Nancy. We're thinking of you all.
