  1. We were very sad to hear about the loss of your Mom. Although I didn’t see Mary much over these many years, she was always very pleasant to speak with. Jeff was accepted into his Dad’s family and I was always thankful because family ties are so important. Our Mom’s memories will be in our hearts forever. Please accept our sincere sympathy.

  2. We were blessed to have met your Mom back in the early 1980’s at Sealright through our friend, Kate Slauson-who worked there also.
    We became friends and your Mom was always there if we needed any advise regarding our two daughters health concerns.
    We would see and chat with your Mom and Dad often as we took walks in the neighborhood. Wonderful people and we are grateful to have known them.
    Our condolences to your family. We will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers.
