As a family we send our condolences on the passing of your beautiful mother. My mom, Pauline Poloway, regrets that she is unable to attend the services. She is in a continuing care facility in Westlock and is not well enough to make this trip. She’s the same age as your mom was.
Know that she is at peace now and resting.
