    Pam, Linda, Paul and Cliff – I was so sad to hear your mom had passed away. She took such good care of me and Diana when we were kids. We appreciated growing up as part of your family. We ate a lot of meals at your family’s table, and we are grateful for the love and care that your mom gave us. If you need anything, please don’t hesitate to call.

    Kevin, Linda,Paul, Clifford, Pam and families,
    We were so saddened by the sudden loss of your mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother. She was a legacy on Blue Lake. I have known her myself for over 35 years. I have always admired her. She was such a caring individual and one who would be there if ever there was a need. She was always active in the Land of Lakes Association. She will always be remembered by us in such a loving way. May you all be comforted to know we share your sorrow. If we can help in any way please let us know. Sincerely, Your Neighbors Ray and Mary Bolton and family

    Pam and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I’m glad that we had some time to share the other day.
    Carolyn
