  1. Sad to hear that aunt Joan passed away. I remember as kids playing at your house with Rusty and Robin and having so much fun. Always being treated so very nice. Every time I saw you two always with a hello and smile. My thought are with you uncle Russell and Rusty and Robin.

  2. Robbin, my condolences to you and your family with the loss of your mother. Mary and I hope you find comfort and your mother finds peace on her final journey. We will keep you and your mother in our prayers.

  3. So sorry to hear about the passing of Joan. I really enjoyed see you and Joan when you would stop at the Hide-A-While in the afternoon. We always had a nice visit. Sympathy to you and your family.
