LuAnn, Kim, & Bob,

Our sincere sympathy in the loss of your Mom. We remember well the times she used to come to visit her Aunt Elsie. We used to play together and had so much fun. She used to love our brother Lauris, as he was a prankster. Over the years we have always talked about the fun times we had with her and Marilyn. After she got married she and Lewy used to stop by and often reminisced about the "good ole days". Please know we share in your sadness at this time and know how tough it is to lose a "Mom". God Bless to you Kim, LuAnn and Bob. Sending our prayers your way: Karlene and Linda Boylan; Richard and Lorraine Boylan Stone.
