Sharon, Mark & Joan
We were saddened to read about the passing of your Mom. We knew her a long time. Your Dad and I were close friends in High School. We played football together and remained friends for years later. Its always hard to say goodbye to Mom & Dad , and all we can really do is be thankful for the many years we had with them. I pray that the Lord will be with all of you and bless you with good memories of your Mom.
