Thoughts & Prayers
We are so saddened by your loss. Through the years, your mom has treated us as kind and good as anyone could. We have come to have a special place in our hearts for her.
We are sorry that we can't be with you at this time, but we are having our 2nd grandchild tomorrow. We have a lot of catching up to be like Mrs. McKenna.
Love to all, Janet and Ira
Only saw your mom's obituary minutes ago and sitting here stunned because Ed and I were speaking of your mom just days ago and her great faith and faithfulness...and of course we mentioned all of you with great love and affection.
Our love and our prayers...you have been so blessed!
Special hugs for you, MaryBeth
