To Kim, Debbie, Cindy and families:

I was so sad to hear of your mom's passing. She was such a sweet and special lady, and I have missed our weekly visits when I'd bring mom back to Pendleton for her hair appointment and a visit with Eula. I thank the Lord for the friend she was to mom. They were really more like sisters than just friends, and they had such similar tastes in so many things. I feel badly that I didn't make the time to see her more after mom passed but enjoyed a phone visit or two here and there.

You are all in our thoughts and prayers (and we would like to honor her memory by making a contribution to the American Heart Association). May the Lord grant you comfort and peace as well as strength for the days ahead.

Much love,
Karen (& Pat) Hart, Hermiston
