  1. Laura, I met you today…I hope after all your tidying up you and your family will have peace…we love our Moms and there will be a hole no one else can fill. May our Creator give you loads of comfort and tender mercies. Regards, Cindy Gingell

  2. Bobbie was a person i admired for her principles and her dedication to working for a cause with no fuss or ego. I have great memories of fund-raising dinners, and of garage sales in her back yard, with always a few minutes just to visit. She will be well remembered.
