Dear Debbie & Doug:
So sorry about your mom. She's at peace and can rest now. There are so many memories from when we were kids, especially since we lived so close. Her long braided hair, painted fingernails, rummage sales, reunions at Carronde Park, the beautiful landscaping & she was a good cook, too. She always told it like it is. She was my favorite aunt.
Love you guys, Dona

Debbie, I am so sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I remember going to your house when we were in junior high and your mom making snacks for us while we watched Dark Shadows. She was a wonderful person. Prayers and hugs to you. Cherish the memories you have.

Darlene was a sweetie to me giving some of her beautiful plants as well as a tour of her garden that went on and on. I always ran in to her at Meijers on Thursday morning all 88#’s of her. Blessings to her caring daughter and son-in-law. Jo Faher
