    Dear Cindy, Jimmy and family,
    I have such fond memories of staying with your family when we visited Muskegon. Your Mom and Dad were always fun to be with and kind. I know it has been a struggle recently and I take comfort that your Mom is with your Dad again. It must have been a wonderful reunion with the rest of the family that passed before. Love to all of you, Sandy and Eddy

    Cindy, Jimmy and family, we send our love and condolences to you at this difficult time. One of the memories of your family was going to the cabin up at the lake. Your mom had such a beautiful smile and a contagious laugh. As it has only been 5 months since Mom’s passing, I am comforted by the knowledge that she is no longer in pain and that she was greeted by family and friends as she passed on. May you be comforted by that same knowledge. We’re sending love your way. With love, Arlene Alvord Christensen

    Cindy and family,
    It was an honor to have known your mom. My mom and your mom went to school together and both are now celebrating in heaven. Hugs my friend
