    We know you will miss your mom very much but we are very happy to know that she is in the greatest arms in her new home. She was such an example to us of true faith in Gods love and care. When we went to see your mom and dad 44 years ago to talk about sobriety along with our 2 small children at that time, we were met with open arms of love. We are forever grateful as we have never looked back. May God bless you all in your time of mourning. We are in Arizona so won’t be with you but our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love Bev and Barry

    Byron, Randy, Maureen and Bradley;

    On behalf of my sisters Coral and Laurel, our mother Shirley and myself we wish to express our kind remembrances of both your parents and the time they made for us, and opened the doors for our family. Your parents filled an important place in our lives and it would have been nice to pass that message to your mother. Time and distance often makes it hard to do that.
