Thinking of you and your family, Jon, during this sad time. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all. A Mother leaves tons of memories and we have enjoyed hearing of many of them. Cherish them forever,
Dear Elmer; Bob; John: Susan: Dean; Julie; and Beth and families.
We were saddened at the news of your mothers passing. She was a wonderful woman, and reminded me a lot of my mother, calm, with the same dry sense of humor.
I wish we could be there for the funeral, but you will all be in our prayers
Spence, Bev, and Kim Clairmont
