Joan, so sorry to hear about your loss! We both were blessed with moms that lived long full lives. Glad to make contact with you after all these years! Dave and I are retired, still together and now live in North Liberty, Ia. I saw Judy Bruns Osier this summer at a Vilmar gathering. And I’ve been sitting with JoAnn while she got chemo at Univ of Iowa. She’s been battling cancer since spring but seems to be ahead of it, as she and Roger headed to Florida this morning for their winter getaway. Our two boys and their families will be here for Christmas, so I’m busy getting ready. I’ve also been doing quilting at church and playing computer games. Wishing you a happy, healthy and blessed New Year as you go forward!

Words cannot describe how much I love this lady! I won't be able to attend either visitation or funeral as I work during both. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you all! She will be forever in my heart! Hugs!
Such a great lady; such a wonderful, faithful friend. RIP, Sena, we love you; we will never forget you.

Sena will forever hold a special place in my heart. She was always laughing and smiling and knew how to put a smile on everyone’s face.
