    We are sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. Your parents were wonderful people. I know our parents shared many wonderful memories with them. Numerous times they would have us laughing about their adventures and travels. It was always a contest as to who had gotten the best deal or the most fun. I know they are all at it again under God’s shadow. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of loss. May God bless you.

  6. Bob, Judy and family…

    My sympathy on learning of the passing of your Mother. Your Mom and my Mom worked together at the bank when very young. They became the best of friends. We all literally grew up together from that. Hence, they are forever logged in as “Aunt” and “Uncle” to our family. The joys, times, travels and stories shared of a lifetime are endless. From farmland, cities, vacation travels and so forth… Am glad we all were blessed from the good Lord to have such friends as part of our family.
    May the Good Lord Bless you and keep you through hard times and keep your parents memories alive. May your Mother be at peace with your Father once again with God, as well as with our parents.

    God Bless You All,
    Ron Harbeson

    Our sincere condolences in the loss of your mother. She was a sweet lady. She always had a kind word for everyone. I just told mom today that she should call Mildred and then I saw the obituary in paper. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of loss.
