Harry, so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. Sister Rosie told Linda and I of your loss. Knowing you and Mary will miss her, as we missed Jim's Mom, and still do, we hope you always rest assured that the good she built into your lives will never leave you. Please accept our thoughts and prayers. ---Linda & Jim.

Ray, I was saddened to read that your mother passed away last week. Jeanne and I were out of town attending our grandsons graduation. I'll always remember the kindness of both of your parents - taking us to homecoming picnics, the family farm, etc. Please accept my condolences. Tom Wobbe
