Hello Becky and Sherry and families,
Stuart and I send our deepest sympathy and love in your time of loss of your Mother. Kathryn was a part of our lives and crossing pathes for many years. We get busy with our lives and people are never forgotten but we don’t “keep up”. The loss of our Mothers are hard at best. Becky, we will never forget your special service to our Mom (Marian) when her hair and nails were so important to her as she declined. You made her day, for her and us as well. What a joy you provided. Great memories will never fade, they are always and forever in our hearts and mind. Our Love, Stuart and Georgann Villee
