Elaine & Erin, We are so sorry for your loss and that we were not at the service to support you at this difficult time. We will miss the wonderful desserts your mom baked and dropped off for us to enjoy. I still use her carrot casserole recipe. Please keep in touch. Let us know if we can lend a hand. I know she will be dearly missed.

Elaine & Erin ... I'm sooooo sorry to learn of your mom's passing, especially knowing how close you three were! I have so many memories of our family's interactions ... from church followed by dinner, to camping and beyond!! Your family was always so special to me, and your mom was always so caring & loving!!!! My fondest pic I have of your mom & I together is many many years ago when I was 17. We were at the funeral home when my Grandmom passed away, and I was not doing well with it at all. Your mom grabbed my hand and had me sit on her lap as she comforted me. That's one of my favorite things about her is how comforting she was to everyone!! Praying for peace & comfort for you both!! ❤❤❤❤
