    Bob, Diana & Allen
    Your mom was always fun & positive. Two vivid memories in my mind were when your parents visited us on the farm. Your mom being the city girl went wild when my dad brought a water snake into the house to frighten her and the second is in preparing for sports day I wanted something new and your mom & mine created pedal pushers which consisted of cut off jeans with flannel border just below the knees. I was so proud! They were also a great support for the kids & me through trying times. Neither of your parents will be forgotten by me! This has been an exhaustive year for you Bob and I hope you relish in the thought that you did everything you possibly could have for your parents. My thoughts are with at this difficult time.

    My Deepest Condolences To: Bob, Diana & Allen. I shall never forget Molly’s warm embrace & the smile on her face. Whenever we got to see each other. To this day, her baking is second to none. Perhaps why I still have a sweet tooth. She will be missed deeply by all. I send you all my deepest sympathy, from the bottom of my heart. And created a short poem to capture a tiny glimpse of who she was:

    Molly from within possessed such a light
    Using it to always help with other’s plights.

    A heart of gold and soft spoken way,
    She shall be missed every single day.
