  2. Dear Wiebe Family,
    I am so sorry to learn of your loss. I always loved visiting with your mother when visiting my father (Lowell) across the hall. My little dog Paddy would go visit her often and she always loved talking about all of you kids, grand kids, great-grandchildren and of course her grand-dogs. I just saw her (& Duane) a couple weeks ago and thought she looked good. What a talented lady, and what great eyesight she must’ve had to do all the needlework. May “His” peace be with you now. My sympathies and prayers are with you.
    Faith & Paddy, too
