Lasting memories is what you made, laughter and smiles are what you created; love is what you gave. Now your smile and presence is what we crave. We may not understand it all, we may never know. Yet you’re gone too soon and here we are, you’re in our hearts which isn’t too far.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been set up at Bank of the West c/o Inger McCormack Acct # 035378877.
