  1. Casey and Bob (and Family): So sorry to read of your loss. No matter the age, it’s hard to lose a parent. Still, wow, 91 years and all that rich of a life (A WAC in WWII…all that she’s seen in those 91 years, and how much the world has changed).

    God bless her on her journey, and God bless you in your loss,

    Deb & Ray
