Dear Combs Family

Jack, Joan, Joyce, Jean, Carol

Sorry for your loss.

My deepest sympathy. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I can remember like it was yesterday, your mother sitting with my mother, on our porch, and also sitting at our kitchen table, talking away.

May she rest in peace!
