I am so sorry to hear of Your Mom passing. She was a kind lady. I remember her talking to me when I decided to run away from home. She set me straight and I went home. I must have been 7 or 8.
I am sorry I will not be able to attend Friday’s service. You are in my thoughts. I hope you find comfort knowing she had a great life.

Marguerite, I was so sorry to hear about your mom and sorry we won’t be in town to attend her services. She was a nice lady and as a fellow “East sider” we got to know your whole family. As my mom was at Evergreen Assisted Living for a few years also, I often saw your mom our walking - she sure wanted to get out and enjoy the outdoors! My mom passed away July 17th, and it’s so hard to say goodbye to the last of that generation. Thinking of you and your family.

My deepest sympathy, Marguerite. I worked for your Dad in the late 70s and knew him and your Mother personally as well. I remember watching the house for them the day you got married and other times as well. I always kept in touch with both of them and was at your Dad's visitation and David's memorial service. She gave me a remembrance of them before she moved to the "big house" as she called it. I always got pecans from her too, including last year. So many wonderful memories of the office and your wonderful parents. I shall truly miss her. Chris Lind
