My deepest Sympathy to Ashley and family.
I just want to send my deepest condolences to you. Moira was such a lovely person. I met her back in the 80s and we became good friends. I always loved visiting with her. I played at Blake and Moira's wedding and seems like yesterday. We became young mothers together and so on. Later in life, I enjoyed seeing Moira around town and she was always so friendly. I am so heartbroken for you and words cannot express anything I feel. God bless you all.— Trina Larter, October 4, 2023
