Dear Robin, Elda, Laura, Willard, Mary, Joyce, Anita, and families-please accept my sincerest condolences for the passing of your mother, Rose. I remember her very well, especially when she worked at M & M, where she and I talked whenever we saw each other; I believe I talked with her more then than during my childhood years. Please remember the good times and know that she is no longer in pain...she is with our Father in Heaven and other loved ones. Death is harder on those of us left behind for we feel that loss, however, please reach out to God to give you comfort. As I told Robin, your mother passed on the anniversary of my father's passing 26 years ago. I remember back then I took comfort, not only through prayers to God, but also through a song by Mike and the Mechanics called "The Living Years." May you all find the comfort you need at this time as I did then. Love, Ann
