From Debbie Turner:
My life has changed dramatically in less than 30 days. As mentioned earlier, on March 22nd, my Father passed away, he was almost 93 years old and one day short of his 65th wedding anniversary. Then in less than a month, on April 20th, my Mother passed away, she was 93 years old. Both parents had health issues, so neither passing was unexpected, but of course the family feels a great loss. They are now in a better place.
My parents were in Assisted Care facilities for close to 10 years. I saw the great need the elderly have for attention. A visit, phone call, letter or card brings a bright spot into their lives. A few minutes of your time brings hours of joy to theirs. So, if you are inclined to send me a card, you can best honor my parents by sending one to an elderly relative or friend instead to let them know you are thinking about them, or call or visit and just send me an e-mail or add a condolence to the funeral homes web site: http://www.bozemitchellmckibbin.com/ for Elmer and Olga Eiland.
