“Dear Randy, Sandy, Rick, and Connie,
We are so sorry to read that your mom passed away. This picture certainly shows the smile that she always wore as she greeted customers in Penney's over the years, and then with company that she visited with after her retirement. She always made time to talk and catch up. She was such a ray of sunshine. As you go through this time of sorrow, may you hold onto those precious memories of a long life well lived, and feel God's love and peace, to comfort your hearts. Tom and Mary Galik/Cedar Rapids, IA”
