I am sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. I will miss her pleasant voice on the other end of the phone when she placed her grocery order at Pfaff’s. I’ll keep you in prayers.

Dear Dianne and family,
We would like to extend our sympathy to all of you in the passing of your mother. It was wonderful to have known her, been a part of her extended family and to have lived above her for a period of time. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers during this time. Hold on to the memories while knowing she has been reunited with her wonderful husband and son Denny who she lost much too soon. Wishing you all the best.
