    For Jeff and family: Please accept my Deepest Sympathies. I am sorry to hear of your beloved Mother’s passing, but she is at peace now and with your Father. At times like this; words may escape us and in our want to lessen someone else’s grief. But may the beautiful and lasting memories you will hold forever dear keep all of you well at this time. God Bless

    Janet was a sister crafter in The Morning Glory’s craft club. I lived down the road. We had so much fun laughing as we crafted! My sympathy to her family and may she be in happiness in heaven now.
