Sharon & Roy, we are so sorry for your loss. We enjoyed seeing you and your mom at Lutheran living whenever we came from North Dakota to see Norma. You always took such good care of your mom and we always enjoyed our brief visits with you. May your mother rest in peace.

Remembering Marcella as a kind neighbor and valued friend. She and David made the Saddle Ridge community a better place to live.
