Condolence & Memory Journal

This broke my heart to see...I knew Mrs. Saunders from the time I was 14 years old being friends with her daughter Kristy. Mrs. Saunders always treated me so sweet and kind whenever I came to her house and even years later whenever I saw her she always treated me so kind. I saw her about 5 years ago when I came home on a trip and it was like we saw each other all the time..she never changed how she ever greeted me. I have thought of her and Mr. Saunders many times over the years. They both will be missed very much.
