Diana and Janet,
Our deepest sympathies to you and your family during this time of loss. We have so many fond memories of growing up together, the laughter that your mom shared with all of us. She was a very special part of our childhood and we want you both to know that those good memories will remain in our hearts for the remainder of our lives.

God bless and keep each and every one of you. May your mother rest in peace in the arms of our Lord and join all the old neighbors for a joyous reunion in heaven.

Cathie and Margie
