Dear David and Becky so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. Be assured that my prayers for your strength, peace of mind ,and comfort are on the way.
Love you both
To David and Cathy, It was a special time and place to grow up in the Franklin school district when we were kids. I have very fond memories of your parents from that time and beyond. I know they were parents to two of the finest brothers and sisters that I have known. We can take solace in the reunion of your Mother with your Father in the spiritual world and I am sure your faith will be a comfort to both of you in this time of sorrow. For all of Lorell's extended family and friends my sincere condolences. Most Respectfully, Larry Daniels
Cathy & David and families; I'm sorry to hear of your Mother's passing, both she and your Dad we great, positive role parents to have in our neighborhood as we grew up. I have enjoyed communicating a few time with Lorell on some Keefer family information and her mind was always sharp and correct, which helped tremedously when I was the TR PastTimes columnist. Again, my thoughts are with you all. Due to the COVID-19 precautions and that I'm immune suppressed from my kidney transplant, I'll be thinking of you from home. Stay well and in touch...
My sincere sympathy to Aunt Lorell’s Family.
