I can recall so many memories over the years ...from camping, to swimming in the pond at her house, and the fun bowling tournaments. Your mom was a beautiful woman in her personality, integrity, and actions. Please accept our deepest sympathies for the passing of your special mom Cora. We are praying that your broken heart is healed through God’s never-ending love.
