Dear Family of Lorna, Please accept belated condolences for the loss of your dear Lorna. I was going to try to attend her service or at least attend her viewing. I try to do that on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Corporation, but I'm sorry to say that, this time, I didn't make it. Sincerely, Joan H Blevins Office Manager Goldfleck Corporation

Best wishes to the Gorder family from the Chase family during a tough time . Mothers are the glue that hold together families and make them work and make them special. So Lorna will be dearly missed, but greatly remembered. Now that Raymond and I have our own special families, we can relate even more to the importance of our mothers and fathers. Please forgive me if I add a quote, and if my recent reading seems odd... ...but Dr. Seuss wisely wrote something pretty profound that might help in some small way at a time like this: "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."
