Add Your Own

Debbe Jensen

My deepest sympathy to Jerry for the loss of his Mother. My Mother recently passed, and you just can't replace your Mother. But, good memories are a gift.

Special thoughts and prayers to Monnie & Charlsey. I was priviledged to
hear wonderful stories about Grandmother Jeanette, when Monnie sat
with Charlsey in hospice during the last days of our dear Momzi's life.

Additional condolences are sent to Kathy, Taylor, Tyler, Bo & Suzanne, Whitney & Kristin and all the Great Grandchildren.

Love and God Bless each and everyone of you. May peace fill your hearts.

Debbe Jensen (Charlsey's Mother)
