  • Deb, I am so very sorry about the passing of your sweet Mother. I loved her, as well as my co-workers did. What was there not to love? That adorable beautiful smile. Those expressive beautiful eyes. Her quick witted sense of humor. Her comebacks to my frequent teasing. We will miss her so much, as I’m sure you will as well. Thank you for sharing your sweet Mother with us. It was our pleasure. Hugs to you, Kim Staiger

  • To the Yunker Family,
    Please accept our sympathies and prayers for the passing of Lois.
