    Debbie, Pam and all of your families,
    We have all lost an amazing, strong women who never gave up no matter how hard the battle was. She set such a wonderful example for all of us that has made a difference in how we have lived our lives. She fought the good fight and has reached the finish line. I grieve with you and my heart is heavy but it is much easier knowing she is resting in the loving arms of Jesus with all the loved ones that have gone before her. What a great reunion they must be having in Heaven! I pray the good memories and knowing the joy she is experiencing in now will carry you through these days.

    Sending you all much love and prayers.

    So sorry to hear about your mother, Debbie and Pam. Your mother was a wonderful friend and neighbor. I will never forget her. So many happy memories!

    Dear Deb and Pam and Families–We saw the obituary posted in the Saginaw News today, and want you to know how sorry we are your dear mom has passed on. We have no doubt heaven just got a little happier! My siblings and I have wonderful memories of the years you were our neighbors, and later when all our folks were in Bridgeport. Your mom had a little “sewing school” you might remember upstairs at your house, and I remember making some doll clothes under her careful instruction. Many many thoughts of sympathy and love as you remember this God-sent mom. Love, Elaine (Allen) Karls
