Condolence & Memory Journal

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. It was so good to be able to visit with you this summer and talk about years gone by. I was so glad McKenna got to visit and see where so many happy memories I had as a child. Linda and Roger kuddos to you both for the wonderful job you did taking care of Mom. I will always have the vision of your Mom's beautiful smile in my memory bank. May the days ahead be calming knowing she is looking down smiling at the farm and those who mean so much for you. Love Cindy(Hurckman)Shook, McKenna Shook and Ida Brooks.
