    I am so saddened to see this. What a wonderful woman who always had to check in and see how my family was. (Even though you may need to repeat it a few times, turning up the volume) She has such a special place in my heart, being Mrs. Claus and all.

  2. Linda Vollbrecht

    My deepest sympathy to the family. I’m sorry for your loss. May happy memories give you comfort and the thought that she will always be in your heart. Sending prayers & hugs your way!
