  • Dear Judy & Dean,
    We are so sorry for the passing of your mother, Judy. Our thoughts are with your family.

  • B.C. & Vicki,

    So sorry to hear of your mothers passing. When we both were able to attend Messiah on Sunday’s, she would always make sure that she said hello to me. That made me feel very special.

    It was my privilege to have known her and help her when I could.
