Dear Dan and Kevin and Family,
We have so many fond memories of your mom. When she retired from nursing she was kind enough to take charge of our newly formed fudge department at the orchard. She was such a hard worker and was very particular about the fudge. It had to be perfect! She meant a lot to all of us and we will forever be grateful. Please take care.
