    Cindy, I’m so very sorry for your loss. I will always remember the last time I saw and spoke to your mother, and the laughter and warm conversation that we had. She is at peace now and with your father. Your mom and dad left us (all) with a wonderful legacy in you, Don, Sharon, and all those beautiful grandkids and great grandkids. My deepest and heartfelt condolences to all of you. Roger

    candle 1Dear Family, Ed and I were so saddened to hear of your Moms passing. We so loved your folks and speak of them often with living memory here in Briarwood at Suntree. We always loved watching them on the dance floor. We know they are waltzing it up together, united finally in Heaven. God bless. Joan and Edward Berrios
