Dear Patty and Family, So sorry about your Mom. She was and still is a very wonderful person. I remember a New Year’s Eve party at your house when I was ten. I still think it was the best ever. God bless you all.
Dear Travis Family, I am so sorry for your loss. She was a great, genuine and loving person. May The Lord Bless her!!!
Many years ago we met sweet Olga. We could never go to her home without her feeding us and boy could she cook! We have such wonderful memories of her and a running joke when I or someone we know would always have food ready…we call them Olga! We’re praying for her wonderful family.

My condolences to your family during this time. May you draw comfort from the words of Job in the Bible who asked, “If a man dies, can he live again?” God assured him that the answer was yes.Job 14:14, 15 May you find strength in this promise of God that you can see your loved one again in the future. My sympathy again to your family.
So sorry to hear about your Mom. She lived a good life, and was a kind person.
I know you all have lots of memories of her. Barb
Sending condolences and prayers.
