Cindy, Becky and Danny and their families,

I'm so sorry to hear of your mom passing away. She is at peace now. She is with your dad in Heaven now looking down and smiling. She was so proud of all of you. I loved being around your mom when I was young and spending time with you guys. Although, Danny never wanted to spend time with me. Even though, we have lost touch over the years I still think of you guys and the fun times we had as kids. I will always remember your mom's beautiful smile and her encouragement she had for me. I know you all will miss her but she is now with the Lord.

I wish I could attend the service for your mom on Saturday but I will be in Wisconsin with my entire family celebrating a very special moment and milestone for Nathan and his girlfriend, Delaney. I will be with all of you in spirit and remembering the love your mom had for all of you.

Love
