Deanna & Darrell,
My sympathy in the loss of your mother. We are never ready to let go of a parent no matter what age they are. Your mother was a wonderful lady with the sweetest smile. Hold on to all your special memories.

Losing someone young is never expected and very difficult to accept. I am really sorry for your loss. At times like these spend time with your loved ones and take it easy on yourself. It is going to be a very bumpy road. I am sorry for your loss. May all the love that surrounds you give you strength. I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.-2Timothy 4:7. As for me, I will lie down that I may sleep; I shall certainly awake, for Jehovah himself keeps supporting me. -Psalms 3:5

Deanna and Darrell - My sincere sympathy on the loss of your mother. My parents thought highly of Mildred and Raldo and I don't think I have ever known a kinder or sweeter person than your mother. You brought them so much joy when you came into their lives.

Deanna and Darrell: I just learned of your mother passing away. May she rest in peace. Such a nice, sweet lady. I plan to come to visitation tonight. Again, my sympathy to you and your family.

Ellen Harrison on Jun 29, 2010

Deanna and Darrell - your Mom was very special and I know you'll both miss her very much. I have many happy memories of spending time at your house when I was young. Mildred was always very caring and kind. You have my deepest sympathy.

Deanna & Darrell
Our sincere condolences for the loss of your Mother. I was so upset to open the paper this evening and find her obituary. Our apologies for not being able to attend her services tonight. It was too late by the time I'd read the paper. She was such a wonderful lady in every sense of the word. I don't think I ever saw her without a smile! Hold tight those wonderful memories that you all have, they help us to get through these tough times! God bless you all.
