Patti and Mary and families,
We are so sorry for your loss. Your Mom and Dad were such good friends with my Grandma and Grandpa Milton and Lorraine Justman who have been gone for a long time already. The connections were many through work at the Electric Co. but also as card playing and fun loving friends. My parents, Chuck and Darlis Wilfer also send their condolences to the family....they would have been at a funeral had times been different allowing it. We did want you to know we were thinking of you and wish you all God's peace and love.
As much as you miss your Mom, just think how lucky you were to have your mother in your lives for so very long. She had a wonderful life journey.
Terri Wilfer Kramer and family
