Steve we are sorry for the passing of your mom, know that God only takes the best, she is now home with your dad and siblings and in a happier place. I enjoyed her friendship over the years at church, her work and many other places or meals in town. We had many nice visits for a long time.

Cherish the memories always and know your family and friends are here for you now and in the days to come. We understand and have lost our parents too.
