    Our sympathy on the death of your Mother, Mike. We remember her as being so composed and beautifully attired when you and Jill brought her to the country club on Sunday mornings. We recall also
    how attentive and loving the two of you were to her needs. Again, our condolences.

    Offering my deepest condolences for the loss of your mother. It’s always such a painful experiences when we loose anyone we love. Please understand, this is not God’s plan. It hurts him as well when he sees us suffer the loss of a loved one. That’s why he promises to wipe out tears, death and pain forever. (Rev.21:3,4) This certainly is a time we can look forward to, and a time we can see our dear loved ones again. (John 5:28) May you all continue to find comfort in Jehovah God through prayer and his word the bible for strength to endure this sad time.

    Mike and family,
    We are sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother. I became acquainted with her at Pioneer Ridge when my Mother was there. She was a lovely lady and I know you will miss her.
    May God and your memories give you comfort at this difficult time.

    Mike, I really enjoyed your parents when we were neighbors. After your father passed, when it snowed I would clear Dorothy’s drive to make life a little easier. Gale and Dorothy were warm friendly people and a joy to visit. I’m sorry for your loss. Dalton
