Im so sorry for your loss Bob and Sandy. As I got to know her about 3 years ago she was always a jokester. Then when I came to work at Willowbrook she always loved to tease. Aka: The Badger she called me.

Bob and Sandy please know how very sorry I am for your loss. I remember my mom said one time “We’re not supposed to have to bury our kids.” She was right. It just doesn’t make sense. I pray God will bless your family through all this. 🙏
