Dear Family of Beloved Amy,
I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing one's mother is one of the greatest crosses in life. Amy was a special lady, and such a delight when she,
June Grosse and I would get together in OM3.
May God give you courage for the days ahead. Thankful for the joys you
had with your mom.
Forever in my heart, Love and Prayers,
Dorothy Schmidt
