    What a fitting service yesterday for your mom!

    There are so many positive memories of hanging out at Mike and Lorraine’s place. Both always had time and words of encouragement for all of us.

    I treasure my memories of your mom as my Sunday school teacher. She instilled in me a love of God to build upon all my life. She was gentle and giving with her time and talent. I remember the songs she taught us, and I am so glad I was able to visit with her last summer.

    May wonderful memories make you smile in the days to come.

    Lillian Olson called my mom today with the news. She was one of my “second” moms. Just thinking about her makes me smile. She was such a loving person. I’m so glad Nick and I were able to visit her last May.
