My condolences to the family. I enjoyed being with your Mom when I work for Triman. She was special and always a smile on her face. It's hard to say goodbye on this side of heaven. Will be remembering you tomorrow as you say your last earthy goodbye.

My sympathies to you and your families. Your mom was special to me. I always looked for her whenever I happened to be at my home church in Morden. I remember how hard she worked while you kids were growing up. Babysitting and helping your mom with canning in the summer. She was also a very special friend to my mom.
