Dear Larsen family, I was sorry to hear about your mom's passing. What a remarkable life she lived. I loved seeing your mom and family at the few get togethers at Mona's and what a lovely lady she was. I guess my fondest memory of your family was at Joan & Terry's wedding, being a flower girl and having a crush on Leif and your cousin, Johnny. Know that I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. My love and best to all.
