    Marty & Girls, My deepest sympathies to you all. I am just thinking of Uncle Bud slapping Pat on the back with that big deep laugh of his, saying welcome to heaven. Your loss is their gain.

    Dear Missy and Family;
    I heard the news today at school from Lexy, i felt terrible, especially since i planned to visit her today. What a terrible way to spend a mothers day, my Grandma spent this Mothers Day without her son, and my Mom without her brother, it has been a bad time. I want you to know, that I am always here for comfort, please come to me if you need it. May God be with you and your family during this hard time.
    You have my number; give me a call. And remember; She is at the right hand of the Father now.

    We want to extend our deepest sympathy in the loss of your wife, mother and grandmother. We don’t know you personally, but we do know your daughter Chris. Chris is a beautiful person and we know that she must be like her mother. Derek, our nephew, has told us that she was a fun and lovable person. It is very difficult in losing a parent – I just lost my Dad. Some days will be good and then some days are rough. Just pray to God that he will give you strength to handle it. Remember all the good times and I’m sure there are many. God Bless You All!!
    Merlyn and Judy Sundvold

    I am so sad to hear about the loss of such a great lady. I always remember being at your house as a little girl and feeling like I was part of the family. Your mom could fill a room with her friendly, welcoming smile. I will pray for all of you and for your mom. I am so sorry for your loss and sadness.
