Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Loraine, I am so glad that I was able to see you today as you were leaving for the cemetery. Not having the proper information for the place of the funeral, I went to the mortuary, where I was able to get instructions to the church. The service for Jim was very nice and I am greatly saddened to know that another of my cousins is gone.Take care, our thoughts and prayers are with you.Love, Dolores and Vern

Laraine and family, I was so saddened to hear from Quintin that his grandfather had passed away. Jim was a great man. I always appreciated his help and support of Quintin in the cub scouting program. Rick and I will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.Love, Ann Wixom
