    So sorry for the families loss she was a wonderful lady and had a heart of gold. I grew up in Kingsbury and moved away, when I came back I rented a box from her and held it for many years. I missed talking with her when I again moved. May she watch over you till you can meet again.

    Dan, Justin, and David I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a very good loving woman. She spoke her piece at times and just for the short time of knowing your parents it was special. May God be with all of you watching over you and comforting you.
