    Kenny, Doris and Family, We are so sorry to hear of the death of your mother. We are unable to come to the services because of illness in our own family. We want you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. May you find peace and comfort in knowing that her loss is felt by all who knew and loved her. We will always remember her warm personality and beautiful smile. If weather permits we will try to come visit soon and also keep in touch. God Bless Aunt Sue, Norma Jean, Jerry, Gary and Janice
