  2. Dear Family,
    It is with a heavy heart that I offer condolences from afar. Memories of visiting with Aunt Isabel and Uncle Jack at their Ogden residence seem so clear. I warmly remember Aunt Isabel’s smile and quiet manner, but most of all the twinkle in her eyes when at a family gathering. I am sure she will remain surrounded by a loving family forever. God bless. Love, Wade

    Dear Thelma, Sam and Family,

    Your mom will be sorely missed. She was such a great life spark – just like you, Thelma. People like that make a big difference in the world to everyone they come in contact with. What a gift that she was able to be here for such a long time.
