Dear Karen, Phil, David (Beth and Justin), Karl (Jaden and Madison):
Have found memories of your Mom's friendly and welcoming smile each time I would come to your house or while passing her in the halls of Mayo High. We have all shared our lives and families together. When one of us leaves we all feel the pain, but certainly you all feel it the most. I'm so sorry for you loss.
Your Mom is surely in heaven singing with the angels along side your Dad and Jacob!
Love and miss you guys.
