Mark, and family, I was sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. Losing a parent is never easy. How wonderful that you had her in your lives for so many years, and you kids have her in their memories as well. Blessings and prayers to you all.

Dear Mark, Marcia, Monica, Matt and family, I am sorry for the loss of your mother. I remember visiting all of you many years ago. Ray was always so friendly and May so very kind. I know they were great parents and they are very proud of their wonderful family. May will be missed by all. With Sympathy, Teresa Kehrer Kennedy

So sorry for the whole family at this loss. I was just thinking about "May" not long ago. I always thought she was so pretty and she liked to laugh. Our mom sure appreciated having a friend to talk to. And I remember mom telling me how hard it was for her when Ray first got sick and then later when he passed. I'm sure May's illness has been hard on you all. Please know that you are all in my prayers.
