    Your Mom was much loved and she loved so many. I consider myself lucky to be included in that group. Someone once told me that all of us are only here for a little while, but the memories we make with loved ones are everlasting.

    Our sympathy and prayers go to you and yours.

    Love, Marvin and Carol

    So sorry for your loss of your Mom. David was my best friend and I spent many a night at your house and still remember how sweet a person your mother was . I still stop by the memorial in Waterloo to remember David.
