    Dear Kevin, Linda and family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. Though I did not know her I enjoyed looking at the collection of pictures and articles especially her Flamingo Easter hat! She will always be with you in spirit.

    Dear Doris,
    You were the best mother-in-law a girl could ever ask for. You broke the mold for the bad mother-in-laws. You were kind, generous, funny and sweet.

    I cherish the time we had together taking ceramic classes together. I will always think of you when I look at the pieces I made with you in class-especially the nativity set I made with your guidance.

    I also cherish the "girl time" we had together when just the two of us would go out to lunch together.

    You will always be dear in my heart and I will forever miss you-but now everyone who has gone before you can now enjoy your good sense of humor and have fun with you again!

    Love,
    Linda
