  1. Elsie and Stella,
    I want to offer my sincerest condolences to you and your Father at the passing of your Mother. I always thought she was a fine person, pleasant, and kind. I know it is a difficult time for you but I believe people like her will truly spend eternity in heaven. I want to apologize for not being there at her services but my body doesn’t allow me much movement outside of the house. Take care and may God bless you all now and always.
    Fondly, Tacho

  2. It’s so hard to let go of our loved ones especially ones that are so dear to our hearts. My thoughts and Prayers are with you at this time. – Coop and Donna’s Auntie Gloria
