I’m so sorry for your loss. I know what it’s like to lose a grandparent, all of mine have passed away, but the one that I was closest to was my Grandpa Stogsdill which was my dad’s dad.
Our deepest sympathy to you all. Your Mom was a sweet lady and I know she and my Mom spent a lot of time talking at the clothesline! I bet they are talking already, hopefully no laundry to do! Love from the Moore’s-Sandy, Duane and family
I’m so sorry to hear about Jon’s mother passing away! Please except my sympathy! We Don’t Say Goodbye We Say…Till We Meet Again! Jack Oesterle,Jr. Kirkwood,Missouri
