  1. Dear Bob, Gladys and family: Sending heartfelt love and sympathy at this most difficult time. We rejoice in the fact that she is now HOME with no more pain but there is always a tremendous difference when MOM is not here. I know she will be missed. Cherish the memories, the love, the laughter and yes, the tears you shared as a family through the years. You all are in our prayers and thoughts. Love, Marge & Keri
