Donna, Linda, and family

We are so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was such a lovely lady. Thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

Love?

Leslie and Rich Rozek


Paula Melfa

I remember Lurlene as a sweet, gentle spoken Christian woman that was the Mother of one of my closest friends as a teenager. Donna and Linda, I'm very sorry to learn of her passing and all your family is in my prayers. There's no doubt Lurlene is rejoicing in heaven with loved ones gone before her and our sweet Lord, Jesus Christ, and that in time there will be a reuniting of all of us. Know that you are in my thoughts and I'm sending my love to you.


John Booko

Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord. That they may rest from their labors and their works do follow them.


Rebecca (King) Foley

Sending prayers your way. Thinking how lucky you all were to have such a sweet lady in your lives. I can imagine the smile on your dad's face when your mom arrived in Heaven. Thankful that we will all get to see our family and friends someday again.


Annette and Kurt Curtis

Donna,

We are thinking of you and your family. Both of your parents were precious people. Just like you. Love and Hugs, Annette and Kurt
