Sherry, Bruce, family – I was so sorry to read of your loss. We do have hope, but that doesn’t help the sting for you right now. I can hardly remember a time when she wasn’t smiling, or flashing those twinkling eyes – trying to pull a prank. Much love to all of you!
Scott, Sharon and Family,
So sorry to hear about your Mom, Grandma. Our hearts and prayers are with you always.
Love, Lori, Robert and Aly, Adele, Tyler and Evelyn
Scotty, Sherry, Shawn and family, our deepest sympathies go out to you. Your mom was an awesome lady. We’re sending out prayers for peace and comfort for your families during this difficult time. Much love to you all and God bless you.
Sherry, Scott, and Shawn, and Macri bunch: So sorry we didn’t make it for the service, but our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. We have fond memories of the times at Keeley with Elsie and your whole family…VBS, Sunday School, Youth Group parties in the basement, and Sherry playing “Oh, Holy Night.”
We love you guys…you are our “kin” through the Yoho’s and in the Family of God.
So very sorry for your loss
