Robin and Kristy, I am so sorry for your loss. I met your mom at St Dominic’s and found a forever friend. We had so much fun laughing and causing just a little trouble. She was a wonderful woman, one of a kind. I will definitely miss her. Love you.

Robin and Kristy, I am so sorry for your loss. I first met your mom and dad when I started dating your cousin, John back in 1960 when we were in high school. They immediately became Aunt Joan and Uncle Dave to me. I will cherish all the wonderful memories of our many, many visits. Both your mom and dad were so special to me and my family. They will always have a very special place in my heart. Love you.
