So sorry to hear of her passing. She has been a customer of ours for quite a while. We loved having her come in, she was ALWAYS very kind and grateful for what we did, and it was always a joy to help her out.
I have to admit, she became one of our fav customers. She was a very special person!

I enjoyed working with your Mother Pam at the Vernon County Sheriffs office. She talked so much about you and Morgan. She was a sweetheart and was always willing to help anybody out. I will be thinking of your family.
