    My deepest sympathy to you, Ken and Julie. I know your mom is proud of you. You did so much to make her life wonderful, you should both be proud, as well.

  5. Nancy A Brown says:

    I met Nancy March 12th, 1983. She had lent Keith her car for our first date and Keith locked the keys in the car and had to have her meet us to bring the spare key. We laughed that I was meeting his mom on our first date. 8 months later she would become my mother-in-law. Throughout the years we shared a lot of laughter and shed tears together more than once. And though I will miss her, I take comfort that she is with her loved ones that have gone before her.

  6. Patti Green says:

    Yep, it says July. I’m here a month early! Will be back on the correct day.

    Love you💖
