Please accept our condolences. Mary was a very pleasant person and every time I stopped in to talk to her we always had a good conversation. I enjoyed spending time with her on her swing in the yard. Very sweet lady. Glad I had the opportunity to know her. Anna and Tod.

My sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear one to you. Our Heavenly Father sent Jesus to provide comfort for “the brokenhearted” and “all who mourn.” (Isa. 61:1-2) (Luke 4:17-21) May these promises give you peace. Deepest sympathy.
