Ronda and family I'm so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. She was a nice lady and it was nice doing business with her. Thinking of you at this time of loss. My thoughts are with you.

Dick/Linda Van Wyk on Oct 4, 2011

We were sorry to hear about your mom. The boys still talk about when you used to babysit them. That seems like yesterday. May your memories of mom be a comfort to you during your loss.
