    Our deepest condolences at the passing of your dear, sweet Mom. My Mom wanted me to make sure and send a condolence and to tell you, " I am so sorry for your loss, she was such a dear, sweet cherished friend". We loved your Mom, too. It was not possible to know her and not love her. Heaven's gain is our loss.

    I will always remember fondly the few summer weeks I spent with "Aunt Ruthie" and Uncle Elvin when I was a child. She was a ray of sunshine. My deepest sympathy to Tom, Beth, John, Paul, and Marjorie.
