Dear Al, Rick, Sheila, Ramona, Pat and families....I just learned of your dear Mother's death...and was very saddened.  She was a very nice lady and will be fondly remembered...from the November many years ago when my crews and I painted her 'new' home on Merrin Street to our short visit at her daughter-in-law Deb's memorial "tree dedication" at the Payne Community Park last summer.  Please accept my sympathy and prayer that God will provide you the strength and peace in this most difficult time.

Dear Mabel's family,
We are so saddened by your mother's passing. She was such a sweet lady and an inspiration to all who knew her.
We wish we could have had her for a neighbor for much longer, but enjoyed the short time that we did.
The kindness of her spirit will always be with us and we hope you find comfort in knowing that she knew where she was going.
Blessings to you all.
Love you. Kerry and Jody Hook
