Tammy and Becky--I was so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I'm guessing Alberta and the rest of the choir in heaven needed her voice to add to my dad's. I know you realize how hard this is, but my thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of your family. Leslie Rutherford Weinstein

Sympathy to Jane's family. I had been with her and the other "ladies" as a member in United Methodist Women helping with the fundraisers. And they "were" very good times.

While only meeting Jane a couple of times, I was struck by what a lovely person she was. Becky and Tammy, I see the same goodness in you as your Mother. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

What a beautiful woman. My heart goes out to you Tammy and Becky. Many memories, hopefully they will comfort you. No words, no words.

We sure were the luckiest kids in the world for many many years. I am so thankful that our Lord above made her a special piece of my life's puzzle. I will smile every time I think of her. My deepest sympathy, love and respect to you both.
