  • So sorry about your loss I was just thinking about your mom. I had such nice memories of her ,and your family. Sorry we did not get to calling hours or the funeral, but we did not realize she, until we were seeking information about a friend who passed away from our church Three Crosses Methodist church in Butler, Ohio. My mom also died last November, so I know about losing a mom. We will keep you in our prayers.
    In christ,
    Roger and Linda Ward
