  • Dear Denise, Mike & Pam,
    Mom & I were so sadden to hear of your mothers passing. We remember the fun times we had at Camp Owens when Mr. Holfacker held the Glenwood staff parties there. Mom enjoyed working with her when they first came to Marion back in 1954.. I really enjoyed knowing her as well as working with her at the gift shop. I know this is a great loss for you, but know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. I am so sorry that we will not be able to attend calling hours & Joan’s funeral because of moms doctor appointment, as she is recovering nicely from a stroke & a commitment I have Monday evening. We will be thinking of you.Denise I will call you later.

  • Mike we are so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom! Please know that we are praying that God will strength and comfort you and your family!

  • My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you celebrate your mother’s life. “May God hold you in the palms of His hands.”

  • Dear Mike, Pam and Denise,

    So sorry to hear of your mom’s death. I have warm memories of her and hope that yours help sustain you in this difficult time.

    Take good care of yourselves and each other on this new journey.

    My prayers are with you.


  • Mike: So sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. We are thinking of you and Tracie during this time.
