Dear Sheryl and family,
I am so sorry about Ruby's passing, it is so sad when your parents pass away. Years ago when I was still in the Insurance business she and Floyd had some coverage with Fischer Rounds Agency. I was always glad to see them come in as they were so fun to talk to. Keeping you in my prayers and know that Ruby is now with Floyd again.

Dear Sheryl and family,
I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of your mom. I would love to attend the services but I am unable to as I will be in Minnesota returning my grandchildren to their parents.
May the presence of God's love comfort you at this difficult time.
I will keep you close in heart and prayers.
God's Blessings,
Karen
