"No matter how old we are, losing a Mother is one of the deepest sorrows a heart can know.  Memories of her goodness, caring and wisdom will live on in your heart and I pray these bring you comfort.  "When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure!" She dearly loved her family and friends and will be missed by many.  Hugs, love and prayers to you and your family.  My heart is sad!  Garland & Jean"
