Nancy and all family: Always enjoyed your mom's baked goods and at her garage sales, she always had the best bargains and enjoyed visiting with her over the years. Cherish the memories, mom is now at peace but still in your heart until you all meet again someday. Always be close with your families and carry on her tradition as good cooks. Thinking of you all. Enjoy hearing stories of your mom tomorrow/Monday. Hi to Mary Ann who road the bus with us when younger. Would love to hear from Mary Ann, another nice member of the Coleman/Gustafson family!
