Our Sincere Condolences
Your parents were the best of people! My husband, Bill, taught High School and our sons attended so we both had contact with your Mom and Dad over the years … either at school or at high school parties. They were always so kind and friendly… Our Lord blessed you with loving parents… we will miss them and we know that you do immensely. Our prayers and blessings for you.
