Jeanie & Family,
Sorry to hear about the passing of your father.
Bob came home this morning & told me. He always took the time to speak with everyone for a few minutes and always had a smile on his face. He was always so nice to me, when he would come into Mack’s to shop. He always talked fondly of his family with pride. I’m sure he will be dearly missed. I remember the day my mom passed as I pulled up in the driveway to her house, as I shut off my car & sat there in silence, thinking to myself from this day forward my life would never be the same and it hasn’t. To lose my mother has been one of the hardest things I have ever had to deal with. It will be seven years & I still find myself in tears. But the wonderful & loving memories of her, helps me finish my journey through life.
So stay strong & keep in mind all the memories you made & shared as a family.
My prayers & thoughts are with you in this difficult time of your life.
The Mortensen’s
