    Judy, Bret, Greg, Matt and Jordan, I will always remember when Michael and I did work for your Mom/Grandma. She opened her home and made us so welcome.
    She was a wise, sweet, and gentle woman that shared her wisdom and kindness willingly. Of course Shannon loved her so much and was so saddened to hear of her passing. Now she can be at peace with her beloved Stanley and give my Michael a hug from me. God bless you all. Love, Marlene and family

    With sympathy,

    Teri and Bob
