Dear Ken & Family, So Sorry For The Loss Of Your Mom. She Was A Wonderful Sweet, Kind & Gentle Lady With A Warm And Generous Heart Who Was Like Another Mom To My Brothers And I.
Mom J, Think Of You Often And I Am Glad I Had The Chance To See You And Visit Back In May When You Came To Town. I Will Always Remember The Times We Came Over The House Through The Years Hanging Out With Phil And How Welcome You Always Made Us Feel. And In The Later Years Calling My Mom And Keeping In Touch With Her Weekly. She Enjoyed That Greatly.
I Hope You Arrived Safely At The Beautiful Pearly Gates And Are Enjoying The Wonderful Heavenly Peaceful Reunion With Dad J And Phillip And All The Other Wonderful Angels Including My Mom And Dad. Love You And Miss You Until We Meet Again. Rest In Eternal Peace.
