We are so very sorry to hear about Aunt Mary's passing. Our thoughts are with all her kids and their families. There are so many extended family members that will miss her tremendously. Unfortunately, Bruce is working out of state and I will be out of state at the time of the service also. We will not be able to be with the family during this sorrowful time. Please know that we will be there in heart and spirit. Love to you all.
Bruce and Donna McBurney, Dalton, Dylan and Dakota
