I know it’s been a very long time, but I just learned of the loss of your mother. You have my sincere condolences. I remember fondly our sleep overs and how gracious your mother was to me. I always thought her artistic touches throughout the house were masterful. Your mother’s beautiful spirit and warm personality was a gift to all her knew her.
Please accept my understanding and know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
All my sympathy,
Marian Robertson (Ahrens)
