Dear Dianne and Kern,
I just emailed my cousin yesterday and asked her if your mother was still at Medco.  She informed me of her passing.  Of course, I did not know at the time or I would have been to the funeral.  
June was so dear to me.  She helped shape my life because of her love for God and her kindness and generosity.  I always thought she was just a "saint".  She & your dad was such a friend to the Clark family.  
Sorry for your loss but I know you find comfort knowing she is in the presence of Jesus singing with the angels--"Holy, holy, holy".  God bless you.

Dearest Diane,

My heart is alternately broken and full of joy. My goodness, but I'm going to miss your Mom! She was such an integral part of a very special and memorable time of year for me. I'll sorely miss her warm, welcoming smile, always so glad to see us, our shared love of growing things and cooking things and crocheting thingsand even feeding things. It won't be The Farm without Aunt June.

And oh, how she loved her kids and grandkids! My heart truly breaks for you and Kernand yours.

But, for all her worldly love, your Mom loved Jesus more, and here's where the joy comes in. Seldom have I been so positive that the kind soul we knew as June in this life will be celebrating her dreams of Heaven come true.

The last time I saw your Mom, we both laughed and cried in the same conversation. I choose to remember the laughter.

With fond memories and my deepest condolences to your family,

(Barb's cousin) Marty
