Dear Betty, Gail and Family,

So sorry to hear your mom has passed. I feel as if I got to know her a bit by all of the FB pics. She seemed like a great lady. What a blessing for you to have had her as your mom. . I know she will be missed. It is never easy to lose a parent no matter when they pass. Our deepest sympathy.

Irma and Ken Fortier
