Sorry to hear about your mom. We met at the Bank, and found out we had a lot of things in common, and became friends. Your mom was a true gem, and I always enjoyed hearing her stories She took me to watch her play bridge as I had always wanted to play, but they were far too advanced for me!
She was a wonderful lady who will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dear Lauren, Kris and family - We were touched to read of your Mother's passing and our dear friend Gwen. In the years at Cedarfair, Gwen became a close friend of ours and we found her not only kind but caring and gentle as well. We shared a bond through our common love of cats - of which we had one "our dear Moofie." Many years at Christmas time, your Mom gave us small books about cats of which we treasure today. Our sympathy to you both and your family at the loss of such a wonderful lady..... Ron and Dawn Schneider
