 Dear David,
I am greatly saddened to hear of your mother's passing. I have good memories of your parents visiting at our house, sharing stories of their trips and adventures--so many of which you had the privilege to share. I know this is a difficult time for you, and I want you to know I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

I am saddened to hear of your mother's passing. As a youngster- I spent so much time with her and your father and have special memories of those visits, trips to Philadelphia at Christmastime, and shopping. Sending you my sympathies and prayers.

Don Martin

 I'm sorry for the loss of your mother and my great aunt. Many fond memories of going to visit "Moe and Pop" next door and talking to your folks across the backyard come to mind. May Aunt Lois find eternal peace and rest in Heaven and may you find it in your heart to have peace with her

Nieces and Nephew Sandy, Barb, and Don.
Dear David,
All loss is difficult, but losing the last of your parents is one of the greatest losses of all. May you find healing and comfort in the love and caring of friends and family and in the hands of the Lord Almighty.
