Condolence & Memory Journal

So sorry for your loss Selma was such a nice person she was my cousin and also a friend. I had a lot fun working with her at the store and also had so much fun when I was invited to Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner one year enjoyed her cooking and all the bakery she made. I am sure going to miss her and again my prayers are with her family.
