My Mom (Joan Cook) dearly loved your Mom. They had a friendship that extended beyond their mutual interest of painting and participating in the Quincy Artist Guild. Their friendship continued even when they had periods of time, they did not see each other due to their health. Your Mom was a gracious and generous person, who showed more concern toward others and minimized attention on herself. My Mom wanted to express her profound sympathy to your entire family on the death of your mother. We will keep you in our prayers as you grieve her significant loss to you, as she was an amazing lady of strength and character, who we will certainly miss too!!

May God grant you the peace that only He can give at this time of sadness in your lives. Rosemary Tenvorde
