Dear Patti, John, Terry and Pam;
Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. I always liked your mother. I remember Lourine frequently wearing an excited smile while going about informing me of what was taking place in her life. She always expressed a kind word for me, and adamantly believed in the inherent goodness in all of her children. I remember her as always exuding a very pleasant and positive outlook on life, with no expression of anger or disdain towards others, ever. The world was made a little better of a place to live due to her presence in it. And I, along with many others, feel blessed to have even known your mother.
With kind rega
...rds and many blessings always,
~Keith Roberts
