  1. What a darling photo of your mom! As you all know, I was SO fortunate to sit beside her at her last “evening out” in early June and enjoy lunch at her table the next day. And I, too, was shocked and saddened by her quick onset taking her downhill and on to her next experience in living. You are all in my thoughts and prayers for relatively peaceful mourning. I will come to Pueblo later and hope to see whichever of you I can at that time for my personal condolences. Most Fondly, Gayle

  2. Janet (Janee ) and family – I was so sorry to read about your mom’s passing. I have many great memories of her and all of you when we were growing up and know you will miss her dearly. I hope and pray the memories you all had together will help you get over this hard time in your lives. Joan (Stratton)
