Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Blake, Michael and families. Tried to call your mom and found out her numbers were disconnected. Then searched on google and saw the news I didn't want to see. Jim and his family have many fond memories of your family. So sorry for her loss. Gone too soon. She was a classy lady.

We loved having your mom as our next door neighbor. She was so sweet and our kids liked chatting it up with her. She even volunteered to pick our kids up from school if we were ever in a pinch. That's just how she was, always thinking of others. She will be missed by all of us.
