Our sympathy to you and your family. Although I had not seen your mom in quite some time, I always enjoyed visiting with her in years past. May God's peace be with you.

My deepest family to your entire family. I have so many great memories of Ed and Irene coming to my parents house to play cards. They were always so much fun and I always looked forward to seeing them. She was a wonderful woman and her friendship I will always treasure.
