    So sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. She was such a good friend of my mother...Loretta. I'm so glad you took her to see Mom in Colfax. Our mothers lived good, long lives and had much to be thankful for

  • Jim Koehler Janice,

    I am sorry to hear about your Mother. She was an angel of a woman. I was a lucky young boy to get to know your mom and dad growing up in their back yard. They had a great garden and it was always fun to see if my dad or your could grow the best looking vegetables in town.
    I enjoyed visiting your mom not too many weeks ago at church. She was still sharp as a tack.
    I wish I could had attended her service, but just heard about her passing. My condolences Janice.
