A sincere thank you to those who sent cards, phoned, text messages at the passing of our mother June Wangerin. Special thanks to the Karvonen staff, Pastor Lee, church ladies and especially to Kim and the staff at Caring Hands. You took such good care of mom.

Love her girls; JoAnn, Beverly, Lois, Joyce and Bonnie. 

Mom chose this poem to be her thank you to you.

After Glow

I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one, I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when day is done. I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I’d like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun, of happy memories that I leave behind the day is done.
