So sorry for the loss of your mother. She was a very special lady. After the work was done, always enjoyed sitting under the patio or inside talking with her.

Wendell, Joyce and families...
So sad to hear about your mom but so happy for her, to know she is at rest and is rejoicing with so many of her loved ones.
One of the best memories I have of her is her laughter. When she laughed, it was so often uncontrollable. And contagious.
All of you are in our thoughts and prayers. We love you all and are saddened we can't be there. So happy we got to come see her for her 90th birthday. Such a fun day.
Our love, Steve and Debbie
