Dear Mark and family, I remember Marge with love and fondness when you were so young and would come over to our backyard and play with Jennifer, Tiffany, and D.J. I pray the Lord's comfort and His guiding hand to strengthen and fill you with His Peace. My deepest sympathy.

Jean, Tim and Marc this will be my third attempt to write condolences. The first two were not finished do to watery eyes and pushing the wrong key and sending them. We were saddened and felt a great lost when we received the news about your mother. She was a remarkable, compassionate woman who loved everyone and honesty believed there was good in everyone. Over the years your family and our family have grown extremely close and the loved we shared will never diminish. We always enjoyed coming to see you all it would brighten up our day. We are sorry for your loss and do not hesitate to ask for anything.
Love ---Cindy, Ed and family
