Dawn, Scott and Families--I was saddened to read of the loss of your Mother. She was a special lady. I always enjoyed talking to both your parents whenever I would run into them.
Keeping you in my thoughts at this time as you celebrate the wonderful life she lived.

So sad to read about the passing of our sweet "Dee". For many years, she was an integral part of our family -- sister-in-law, Myrna Lopez Ninde, being her cousin and close family friend. May she rest in peace and may you take comfort in knowing how loved she was by so many. God Bless!

So sorry for your loss. Dee was a wonderful lady. Her volunteer hours at Grandview were a treasured time for all. She was a shining example of family values and community service. Prayers for peace.

Dawn and Scott,
Seems only yesterday you were little tiny kids when your Aunt Ruth and I would visit your mom and dad.

Because so many people are thinking about you, I hope that lifts your hearts!

Sonnie (Ruth's forever friend)
