Relation: Friend of the family

I was sorry to hear of the passing of your dear mother/grandmother/great grandmother. She leaves behind a wonderful legacy of family and friends. I have many fond memories of your Mom including fun filled sleepovers, church related activities, her work at the High School cafeteria and as a lovely singer in any number of choral groups in our community. She was a tireless, yet cheerful worker and will be sorely missed not only by her family but by our community as a whole. When I think of your Mom, I am reminded of the hymn “All Things Bright And Beautiful,” as she most certainly possessed both of those qualities. Sincerely Heather MacNaughton Frank
