So sorry to her about Mom. We know how hard it is right now, but the love and laughter you have shared will stay with you forever. Take care of each other. Love you, Judy and Ted

Dearest Maryanne and Rhonda,
We are so very sorry for your loss of such a wonderful woman. I had the joy of meeting her many years back. She is resting easy with God now. Maybe even listening to my dad tell fish stories. Our deepest sympathy to you both and your entire family.
