Nancy and Janet, I grieve with you both, but we also share many sweet memories of Eunice and Bill. I know it is so very painful to lose a mother, but you really haven't lost her. She will live on in your hearts always. My mother has been gone 4 1/2 years, but I still think of her and share things with her every single day. I know we will all see Eunice and Bill some day soon. God bless you and your families. I am grateful to be a part of theirs and yours. Love, Bruce

Janet .... So sorry to see hear of your mom's passing. Upon reading her obituary it really seemed as though she was a great lady. I'm sure you were very proud to have had her as your mom. There's not much anyone can say at times like these except that we carry on our loved one's values and traditions the best we can. Again, I'm so sorry for your loss.
