  1. So sorry for your loss. When I think of your mom, I see her smile. I remember her singing solos in the Golden Chords Choir. She seemed like a gentle loving lady. We have been missing her for a long time at church. God be with you all.

  2. Dear Mike/Karin, I’m sorry for your loss. May favorite memories be treasured. Hugs
