  1. Saddened to learn of Raeanns passing. She was a caring, giving, helping hand, non judgemental lady.
    I envision she has joined her beloved Bruce, in a pair of lounge chairs, pile of books between them, under an umbrella, on their favorite Florida gulf coast beach. RIP
    Prayers of peace to her family and close friends.

  2. So very sorry to hear about Ranne, a very dear friend from Three Rivers, we had lots of sleep overs as teens,& kept tract of each other…knew Bruce, & remember you, Natasha as a baby. Now live in Sirea Vista, AZ. My deepest sympathy to you & your families. …she was a vey good friend long ago. Linda Brett

  3. Natasha and Colin;

    I have many fond memories of your mother. I met her before she and your father married.
    I will remember most how well she handled her struggle with diabetes, a disease we shared.
    Because of a prior commitment, I will be unable to attend the memorial service. Please know my prayers are with you.

    • Lorin,
      I have fond memories of visiting with you while we were growing up. I’m doing some ancestry work and just saw this. I missed it in the midst of all the arrangements and travel following her passing. Thank you so much for taking the time to write to us. Hope you are doing well!
      Love, Natasha
