It was a pleasure knowing your Mother and working with her at Dr.Gardner’s office. My life was enriched by knowing her and Roscoe. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Kenneth and Sherra,

My deepest sympathy goes out to you.

I remember all the fun times we had going on outings with your mom. She was a very “special” lady.

With everhthing that passes something beautiful remains.

My warmest thoughts are with you in caring and sympathy.
