Dear Lorraine, Larry and Ronnie
Sad to read of your Mom's passing. I have many fond memories visiting on the farm in Hilda as a child. There was always a great meal prepared by your Mom. Your Mom was a kind and caring person and will be missed by so many. She always welcomed my parents and I to their house.
Our deepest condolences.
