Gustafson Family: Please accept our condolences in your loss! The Lucases were our neighbors & I would often see Mary Anne & Richard! My dad & I would visit Richard in the garage & look at engines. I would visit Leila often on my bike while she visited with Katie Vicander. If my memory is correct, Sparkie & my sister were classmates? Please know that you are in our prayers & thoughts at this time!

I didn't know most of you, but I consider your Mom a dear friend. I worked at the Rouse care cottage where she lived. She was an amazing lady. We shared a love of books and flowers. I will miss her. God bless you all.

Sparkie, Todd and Scott, and families, So sorry for your loss. Lots of fond memories of your mom for sure for us living down the road for so many years. My mom, Mary sends her sympathy and prayers to all of you too. She shared same birthday with your mom, same year same Dr. She felt so bad got the last Birthday card back to her just days after your moms passing so had hoped your mom had gotten that card before she passed away. They worked together at Fairgrounds painting etc and shared memories with each other. May she rest in Heavenly peace now.
