Not sure what to say?

Your mom was a wonderful, generous and trusted friend and neighbor to me and my parents. She and your dad were always 'right there' whenever help was needed on the farm. As a young girl, I was fascinated by all of the crafty she could do and create. Of course, she patiently shared her talents with a small band of noisy neighbor girls in the 4-H club she led with my mom. Thanks to you, Mickey and Donnie, for sharing your mom and your dad with me.

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.


My sincere sympathy on the passing of your mother. I know you will miss her.

Your old classmate,
