A graveside memorial

Westhope Cemetery with

a celebration of life gath-

ering to follow at the

In lieu of flowers the

family requests that

memorial be given to the

Alzheimer’s Association.

We would like to thank

everyone for all of the

love and support we have

experienced during this

difficult time. Thank you

for all of your acts of

kindness, comforting

words, sharing memories

of our mom with us and

cial thanks to all who

special time to celebrate

mom’s life! We deeply ap-

preciate it! Thank you for

keeping us in your

thoughts and prayers!

May God bless you!
