Dear Leanne, Phillip and Austin,
Since I don’t know your address, I’ll send my condolences this way. Leanne, I’ll never forget the memories we made at your house playing dress up with the clothes your mom handed down. I also remember her sewing us matching maxi dresses for Junior High, with the matching choker bands. Oh the styles back then! I’m sending hugs your way for peace and serenity in the days to come. Sincerely, Linda

Leanne and Family,

We send our condolences and think of your Mother with great fondness. Charlie remembers Alice knowing more law than most lawyers. She was a guiding light to a young lawyer. We're sure you are blessed with wonderful memories. Take good care, the best to your and your Family. Sincerely, Charlie & Pat
