    Dear Candy and Steve, So sorry to hear of your loss. What great memories I have of your mom, Candy! She always tried to give us culture and fun. And what a sweet, gracious lady she always was to all of us who were privileged to be in her company. I grieve with you both, as I have lost my parents, also. May GOD give you peace and wonderful memories in this trying time. I still remember, your mom taking us to "Messiah" at I.U. Love in CHRIST, Janet <><
