Kay, So very sorry for the passing of your mother. Memories will be forever.

My condolences go out to Mrs. Tomamichel's family. I had the privilege to live next door to her as a child and mow her lawn. She even showed me and let me try the manual lawn mower that Rollan used before his passing. Her kindness will never be forgotten.

Esther was such a joy to be around. She was always so happy and full of life. She shared the same birthday with my husband, Dick, She never let a birthday go by without sending him a card. She was a special woman, one I was proud to know and be related to. Kay - you were a fabulous daughter to her...I know how much you will miss her. You are amzing, just like her!! All my love, Brigitte

Kay, Sending our sympathy on the loss of your Mom. We have such wonderful memories of your parents. Growing up with you and being neighbors for so many years to your Mom and Dad will always bring a smile to my face. They were so good to my children and we truly loved both of them. We will miss your Mom as we know you will too. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. Debbie & Dale Landmeier
