    David,Danette and entire family. My heart is overwhelmed with the wonderful memories of such a sweet,gracious and warm mother to all. My continued memory will forever be held with the same smile she shared with so many. As mothers go….she was one of the “Best”. I rejoice in knowing I’ll see her again in time.

    Danette, I’m so very sorry for you, I know that you will miss your Mom so greatly. Although I did not know her but did meet her, she has passed from this life to a greater one. She is greatly admired to have raised such a caring, giving, selfless, hard working daughter as yourself. Call anytime you need any help, even when there is no sound from you but just tears. You are very blessed to have had your Mom for so many years. Giving thanks to God for you and your family. Sending Love to Logan.
