Linda -- I was so sorry to hear of your dear Mother's passing. We spend summers in Montana, but fortunately my sis keeps me abreast of what's going on back in Ogden. In an attempt to connect with you when you lost Brent, I left a voicemail on your home phone. I can only imagine how hard it was to lose a husband, but I know first-hand about losing a Mom -- lost mine in December 2009. I think of you often & cherish the fun times we had as cheerleaders & friends. You were absolutely one of the sweetest friends I ever had! I wish you well, & hope the deep grief at the loss of your Mom will eventually be replaced by peace & comfort in the memories you have of wonderful times with her. She will always be with you -- as my Mom is with me.Love, Chris

Lorna was one of the nicest ladies. My Therapy Dogs (Sam and Max) visited with Lorna at Country Pines. Lorna loved the dogs and the dogs and I loved her in return. We will remember for a long time to come.
