    Our heartfelt condolences to the family. Mrs. Ryan was a warm and kind woman. I can picture her smiling face, always so enjoying what was going on around her. I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing her for many years, but do remember the good times and, of course, the delicious country cooking.

    May the sadness you feel be brightened by the special memories you have of your Mom. We have fond memories of your Mom when she lived across the road and that doesn’t seem long ago, but when you get thinking about it it’s quite a number of years back. Sending sincere condolences and warm hugs to you all.
