    Karen, Artie, Fred and Walter

    Sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. Our hearts are sad. She was a very kind, fun-loving woman. We have many good memories of family times together. She is at peace now, and reunited with your Dad who was the love of her life.

  2. Greg & Rose Russ says:

    To Fred and all your family,
    We share your sorrow and loss of your mother. It is always so hard to part with a parent; it’s a type of loneliness that wrenches the heart. We know her through your devotion to her, as well as the type of person you are. Our Lord knows your pain; may His peace enfold you and comfort you.

  3. Sue Wolverton says:

    Dear Fred, Sarah and Family,
    You are in our thoughts always.
    With family gatherings coming up, a good time to recall fond memories of your Mom, and of your Nana.
    In our hearts,
    The Wolverton Family
