Dear Patti and Myra…….Please accept my condolences in the passing of your Mother. I have known her since I was born, I think ! It was nice sitting and talking with her when Doug’s dad was buying your father’s old car for his Dad. Your Mother was such a soft-spoken, nice person and her soft voice was always warm and loving. Hold all the memories of your Mother in your hearts forever and may they bring you comfort.
In peace…..Jane Rex Flesher
