Allison, Gus and Family,

So sorry to learn of your Mother's passing. I know you will miss her terribly but I also know you have many wonderful memories.
I wanted so much to come to calling hours tomorrow but my cousin's funeral is also tomorrow morning at Beach City and I will be unable to come.

Wanted you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Take care and keep in touch. Love, Carol Snyder
