Dear Joan , Doug and Family. Please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of your mother. Our thoughts are with you. Sincerely Mary Lou & Paul Bolen

We were very sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a truly lovely woman who always enjoyed chatting when I would go into the nursing home to see dad. She loved children and her face lit up when any of my grandkids went in with me. She had a special twinkle in her eyes for Paige who would actually go to her room as your Mom sought out some candy. There is never a good time to lose someone we love, but Covid does make loss more difficult as so many things we do to show support aren't encouraged. I hope you know that we feel deeply for your loss and hold you and your whole family in our thoughts and prayers.
