    Dear Ron and Karen,
    So sorry for your loss. Your mom and I were only 9 years apart. I had so many childhood memories that go way back. We had wonderful times together as the years went by. I will always remember her love and kindness through the years. Richard and I cherished the time we spent with them. We send our love to you. Richard and Patsy

    Dear Ron & Karen,
    With heavy hearts we are saddened with the passing of our sweet Aunt Awanda who we had with us for 91 years. We will always treasure the wonderful family memories which made us feel special and loved. Yes, her beautiful light has blinked out, but at night when we look up at the stars, we will see her shining from the heavens with Uncle Vernon. Thanks again for sending us the copy of Aunt Awanda & Uncle Vernon’s wedding picture which we treasure. Sending you both a special hug with love, Jim and Dianne
