Dear Jim, David, Leah and families,

We were so sorry to hear of Mary Anne's passing. We have fond memories of spending time with all of you and marveling at her many talents. It's hard to think that we held newborn David in our arms when you lived nearby. Our love goes out to all of you, even as Don is still at Lutheran Care for Rehab. Please know that you are in our hearts where all good memories are stored. Love, Jan and Don
