    Kenny and family, it’s always difficult to express sadness.

    Mothers hold special places in our hearts as there is no truer love than that of a mother. (Same goes for Grandmothers & Great Grandmothers)

    May she rest in peace.

    No truer words have been spoken….

    “Although it may be difficult today to see beyond your sorrow, looking back in memory will help comfort you tomorrow”.

    “While death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal!”
    (Author Unknown)

    Our hearts and thoughts are with you and your family in this time of sorrow.

    Take comfort in knowing an Angel is watching over you.
