My mom and Margaret were good friends for many years. Mom passed away a week ago - she would have been 97 on Dec. 31st. Sharing in your sadness but knowing they led wonderful Godly lives and are enjoying Christmas in Heaven. Stan and Nancy Speer

Thanks Stan, I just saw your mom's obituary, our sympathies to you too. It was great being friends and neighbors for many years, looking forward to that continuing in heaven!

Dear sister, I know you love flowers, and while my garden is barren, know that I will think of you when the lilies bloom in my garden. Your sister
