Hello Hurd Family,

Please accept our deepest sympathy in the death of your mother. Judy told me that seven of our family were able to make it to Aunt Ernie’s service. I hope you find solace knowing that the special people who cross our path in this life make the journey more beautiful.

Penny, Jeff, Buzz, Pat, & Joe,

We were sorry to hear of Aunt Ernie’s passing. She was a very special person. We have very fond memories of time spent with her and you. We especially appreciated the time she spent with Mary Lucy when she was ill. And we still remember the beautiful blankets she made our two daughters when they were born. We are sorry we could not make the services but want to extend our deepest sympathy to you and your families. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
