    Dennis and Kathleen,
    We were very sorry to read about the death of your mom Anne. Always enjoyed seeing her at church, as she proudly watched her family leading us in song and prayer. We were away or we would have come to the funeral for sure, it would have been very good to see you both.
    Hope all is well with you both and your family.
    Love and prayers,
    Michele and Rick
