Wade & Wendy,
I am so sorry for your loss.  I have many great memories of time spent with your Mom.  We shared many laughs together.
We will include you and your mom in our thoughts and prayers.

Wendy and Wade:
Dawn and I worked together at church, and we were in the same Circle for many years.  She was a joy to be around.   Her illness prevented her from helping, and she has been missed.  May God bless her memory.   A $25 memorial will be sent to Our Savior's Lutheran Church.
