Cathy, Christine and Bruce our heartfelt condolences to you during this extremely difficult time. Your mom was such a fond part of my memories growing up on Linwood and especially in the later years, she was such a dear and cherished friend to my mom. I always remember bringing my children over to see her at Halloween as she got such a kick out of their costumes. I also remember pulling in the driveway to my parents and seeing her sitting on the front steps. We'd pop over to chat and she enjoyed catching up on what was going on in the kids lives. Such a lovely lady and a kind soul. Thinking of you all. Marcie, Bob, Havyn, Jarek Jesperson
