"Dear Jenny, Cindy, Charm and Jeff, I want to tell you how sorry I am in the loss of your mother. She was an awesome person and a Grand Lady. She loved her family with every fiber of her body. She was so kind to everyone, She took me under her wings and treated me as one of her own children. She was so proud of each of your and her grandchildren and great grand children. She will be missed by everyone who knew her, "

"Such a beautiful, friendly lady. I remember as a kid stopping in there with my family getting a drink or a burger. then as I got older I would stop in if the flag was out and browse all the antiques and visit with her and her husband. So sorry for your loss of such a great loving lady."
