Brenda and family,
We just returned from holidays, and was so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. Sorry that I was not here for the service.
Your mother was a kind and wonderful soul, I loved her laugh and I still laugh at how she could not get over how little I ate. I have lots of fond memories of her.
I am very sorry for your loss and even though she lived a long life for those left behind it is never long enough. Wrap yourself in her love for you and keep your memories close.
Barb Lemay (Hendel)
