Debbie and Family,

I was so sorry to hear about your mom. I just happened across her obituary. I know this is late, but I just wanted you to know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Debbie, Frannie, and Family,

We are so sorry to lose our Grandma Jean. Although she has left us, she has left behind many happy memories for us. We loved her laugh, her silly sense of humor, and most of all, summer days of sitting on the porch with all of us.

God bless you and your families during this time.
