    Dear Lorraine and family

    I was so saddened to see that your mom had passed away.

    I am going to miss our monthly visits.

    She was such a sweet, gentle and kind lady!!

  2. Annalee Hearn says:

    Linda, Lorraine and your families, Dick and Carolyn Wilkinson shared the sad news of May’s passing with me. I am so sorry to hear of your lose. I feel certain that Bryan would have been one of those to welcome her to her heavenly home. Bryan’s sister Sheila has a grandson who is sure that his Grandma Sheila, Grandpa Ron, Uncle Bryan, and Great-Grandma Myrt play a lot of cards in Heaven. In which case, I am sure your Mom has joined the game and the Bridge Tournament is on.
    I have been doing a lot of traveling so missed seeing you in Etzikom for the 100th. Take care.
