Dear Wendy, Renee, Scott, and Family
Thinking of you during this difficult time.
May the memories of your mom bring you peace.
Such wonderful memories of you guys at the Matthees Family picnics. Your mom had such a warm positive energy. I can still see her wonderful smile.
I do remember your mom and dad being great dancers! Nothing was impossible for them to dance to they led the way with a polka or a waltz.
Hugs to all of you,
Susan (Matthees) Burns
