Dave, we were so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. Every time I walked in the room she would say are you Pat's sister and I would say yes. Then she would smile and we would talk. Going to miss seeing her when I go visit my aunt and other sister. Know that we will be praying for you and your family. Thinking of you !!

I knew Marion first when Linda and I went to school together, then later Marion and I worked at the high school cafeteria together and then we met again when she, her sister Gerry and I bowled at the Ogdensburg Bowling Lanes. I will always remember her kind smile and sweet personality. My condolences to the family.

Dave, We extend our condolences on your Mom's passing. Just heard about it yesterday as we are in Florida. As we talked about in the ER at Hepburn recently she is no longer struggling and restless. She is now at peace. Our prayers to you and the family.
