  • Dear Joyce and family,

    I have many memories of this kind, loving lady at Northfield, helping with the tack shop and Angie and Brett. Her Ritz cracker apple pie was delightful! May your memories help carry you through your grief, and remember she will always remain alive in your hearts.


  • Dear Connie and family,

    My deepest condolences on the passing of your mother. Her job on Earth is done, and now she will watch over you from Heaven. May you feel comfort in knowing that her journey continues.
