Condolence & Memory Journal


I was sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. Our old neighborhood and the farmers who lived there had special bonds that are seldom seen now. I always admired your mother and thought she was very beautiful and remember her always happy and laughing. She was a good friend to my mom and dad for years. She will be missed.

Dear John,

I saw the notice of your Mother's passing. I remember her fondly and know that she and my parents had many interactions growing up and living in Appanoose County. I know you take comfort in knowing she had a blessed life.
