We are so sorry for the loss of your mother-grandmother, but rejoice with you at her arrival in her forever heavenly home. I know how hard her illness was and I pray for healing for her family. It is courageous of you for your devotion to her in the ladder years. She was a delightful lady and so loved in our community. You are blessed to come from such great parents. I feel close to your family, Ken and I go back a long, long way- even babysit for your oldest children, I would see you Carla ever so often when you and your Mom could get out together (last time was the Dollar Store, several years ago! smile!), so many memories of your family! And we worked with Harry Willard at K-State Facilities. We are sending our sympathy and our Love, Lynn and Michael Salsbury
