    Ken-Michelle and Debbie-Gardner,

    I am incredibly sorry for your loss. Your mom was an amazing, loving and kind woman. She was truly one of the most loving and generous people I have ever met. I loved her and your dad. They accepted me and loved Stacy and Ashley as their own. Your mom took the time to make raspberry pie with my girls and share her home, her gentleness and most of all her love with all of us. I pray Gods peace dwells within you as the memories of who she was flood your hearts.

    Much love and prayers,
