    Darlene and family:
    We are so sorry for the passing of your Mom. She was one of the first people we met on our first trips to Molasses Pond with Christine and Rob, and made a huge impression. She was warm and welcoming with her quick smile and hug. Her her humor was only second to her peaceful and charming character. I told Christine and Rob that my favorite memory was riding on the party barge one afternoon and while riding past the family beach we saw Kathy and Jan sitting and enjoying the sun with their kayaks resting beside them. As we passed they both raised their hands and waved with obvious smiles. I mentioned how peaceful they looked and waved back. That is how I will remember your Mom. Happy with her face to the sun and feet in the sand.
    God Bless.

    The loss of a cherished loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are family and friends who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that “God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. God will comfort you during this difficult time of grief. Our prayers are also with you and your family.
