Please accept my heart felt condolences as your MOM passes to a better place.
A reflection from back in the day:
From my point view Morlene was a very KOOL mom during the 1960’s (my favorite). She had the perfect balance of humorist, watch dog and forward thinker. I always considerd Morene to be a friend that would listen my points of view, then, provide corection if needed.
Rose and I would like to extend our deepest sympathy and love to Morene’s family. We have known her for a long time and we know that she will be missed by all of you as well as by friends.
May the good memories prevail during these sad times. With an open heart, Maureen, made sure that we were welcomed with her special gestures of love. When visiting, she had the Popsicles for the kids, a deck of cards for our entertainment, and always shared an abundance of goodies for all. Her energy was amazing, and contagious! I can only hope to be the kind of aunt she was, always giving and enjoying family time together. We will miss her, but know that heaven holds a very special place for her.
