  3. Brenda, Cathy, and all your families,
    Please accept my sincerest condolences on the loss of your Mom. I will always remember Linda and Ray as good friends of Mom and Dad, and all their kindnesses to Mom after Dad died. They also introduced Mom to her dear friend, Frank Jacobs.
    I hope you are comforted by the knowledge that Linda will not be forgotten. She was a lovely lady.
    Sincerely, JoAnn Jones

    Dear Brenda and family,
    We were saddened to hear of your Moms passing. We will always remember the good times we had in Irricana, at ball games and at our farm. Your Mom called me at times to ask about mom and Isabelle, Scotts mom and I really enjoyed catching up with news about your family.
    Sincerely Barb Nixdorff
