Dear Marna and Paul and Scott and all family and friends,
Our sincere sympathy is being sent across the miles.
Your Mom is such a sweet, sweet, soul. I will miss our visits. She is a dear cousin and sweetheart. Know that she is now resting gently in Jesus' arms and being reunited with many loved ones who have gone before. She is now also reunited with your Dad whom she loved so much. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you grieve the loss of your Mother and Grandmother. She spoke so lovingly of all of you. We know she will be deeply missed. Hugs and love, Cousin Cindy and Jim Holkup
