Dear Donna, Jeff, Gayle and families:
We are so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was such a loving, caring, personable person and I'm glad I could come to her birthday party you had for her. Everyone I had called came to the party except two who had to be out of town.
I watched your Mother in Bible school and in church and I will surely miss her in our church endeavors and services.
We happened to be out of town and did not know she had passed.
Take care and God Bless. Joan and Dale
