I am sorry for your loss. Your Mom will always be at your side. Might be a raindrop or a rustling leaf or the first star you see. But it will be your Mom. Prayers for you and your family.

Dear Cheryl and all your extended family. I wish to send my condolences and prayers to you all for the loss of your mom. You know she took the place of my mother and she always smiled so big when I called her "Mom" as she did the day I visited in her room. I pray for peace knowing she will have joined your dad in heaven. I can't say enough to make you feel better but I can hug you with my heart. Peace and Blessings be with you all! Love you, Lesa

Please accept our sincere condolences. We knew your mom and dad when they helped with bingo at Exline Sportsmans Club. They were both always friendly and caring. Hope every day gets a little easier. We will pray for all of you at this difficult time. Sincerely, Bill and Donna Casino
