Dear Reid, Wendi and Libby. I only met Doris a few times. She had to be a fabulous person to raise such a wonderful son. Thoughts are with you and your family. Love you guys. Diana and Jim

Dear Debbie, I was so very sorry to read of your mother's recent passing. She was a lovely lady and a good mother. She and your Dad were always hospitable when I had the pleasure of visiting your parents with you during the college years (and later when we were both teaching and having our babies)! It is a difficult time to lose anyone as services are impossible. We almost lost my Dad (93 1/2) a few weeks ago and found the hospitalization process difficult. Hope you were able to say goodbye. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May your mother's love always remain in your heart. Please pass our condolences on to your entire family. Affectionately, Marsha and Mike Cox

We are saddened to hear about your Mom's passing. A Mothers love for many years even though the more recent ones have been challenging for all of you...her love was always in her heart. May God Bless you as you say good bye for now...and cherish the love.
