Roger, Sharon and Ranae, your Mom was such a blessing to the Wold family during our years in Greeley and the years to follow. I’m sure Bobbi (2016) was delighted to see her! My condolences to you and your extended family in the loss of this wonderful lady. “Precious in the sight of The Lord is the death of His saints!” Psalm 116:15
