  1. To Stacey and all the Zoback family members, directly and by extension;
    It is never easy going through the loss of someone you love. Expected or unexpected. I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to all of you on my behalf and on behalf of my family members.
    From what I have come to learn of Helen she had a good sense of humour and zest for life. She was a strong woman who loved her family. I am sure she is dancing somewhere in the great beyond with Ted & getting the last word in; being free from ailment and pain.

    Dear Stacey & Family,

    Our deepest condolences on the passing of your dear mother, friend, and grandmother. I’m sure the days ahead will be a little less now that she’s not here to share but she will be there in your thoughts and memories.

    Barry and family,

    Sorry to read of your mother’s passing. I haven’t thought of your family for years and am pleased that she lived to 93 years and apparently enjoyed her later life. I can barely remember Sharry who was a little squirt when I last saw her! But I do remember visiting your home and being amazed at your mother’s collection of salt and pepper shakers! (Hope I got that right.) Still shooting par?

    My sincerest condolences, Barry, to you and your family,

    Cec Lukenbill
