Dearest Nancy, Diane, and family,
Was so sorry to hear of your Mother's passing.
Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
I guess God decided he needs our sweet little Mama's to be home with Him.
I am here, you've got my number and if you need anything don't hesitate to ask.
Sending our love, Linda and Gary Leyden
