Condolences

Wanda, Terry, I just found out of your mom's passing Saturday.  Karna informed me that she had attended te funeral.  I am so sorry to hear of this, but I lost my mom last september and I realize that sometimes death can be a blessing for the elderly in poor health.  We still hate to give them up.  God be with you folks ad I'll be thinking of you. 

Just read of your mom's passing Terry. Love to you and your family. Jacque

My sympathy to the family. I spent many a night at Pat and Lillians house in Caldwell during the 50s. I was always treated with kindness. May you always remember the love they gave.

Beautiful picture of a beautiful lady. Lots of good memories with her and Pat. Used to come down to McKormick's bridge with my folks.
