Tony & Robert,

I know this is a really hard time for the family, but we’re all holding you up in prayers and thoughts. So glad I got to meet your mom when she was visiting you in Arizona. She had so many talents that I’m sure she’s given to you & your siblings. Moms are so special & may you remember all the fun times with her & your family.

Love & Hugs…Beverly Hansen
