Condolence & Memory Journal

We are not going to be able to be at the funeral home tomorrow morning. It was good to see you a couple of weeks ago, Karen, and talk with you.
We have happy memories of your folks when we were with them at Bible Church. Your mother was so sweet and easy to talk to. It's hard to have a parent pass away. You are in our prayers.
Love, Norm and WillaCHZxx

I am so sorry that I cannot make it to the visitation. I will treasure the memories of Rook games on Sunday evenings. I love your family!
