Dear Jere, Katrina, Anna & Derek,

We will miss June very much. We have enjoyed all of our get-together’s and just sharing time with you both. Sharing the same birthday with June will be tough to celebrate without thinking of the times we have celebrated our day together. June was the sweetest person & a joy to know.
Jere & family you are all in our prayers and we are sorry that we can’t be there. We will keep in touch and hope that soon we can come to Lawrence to visit. Love & deepest sympathy to you all.
Dave & Brenda

From Marcia Riley...

Dear Jere, Katrina, Anna, and Derek,
We are so sad to learn about her illness and now her passing. We loved her so much. I would not have been able to have left Justin and Matt as babies, and go to work with peace of mind, with anyone but June. June adored all of “her kids” as her own, and we will always have a special place in our heart filled with love and gratitude for her. She will be greatly missed.
Steve, Marcia, Justin, and Matt Riley
