    April and Family,
    There are no words adequate. I will always remember your mom – clear back to when we were in nursing school and the two of you were my neighbors, years ago. The loss of a parent is one of the most painful things we go through. I am so very sorry. Even though we are apart, please know that you and Even are very much in our thoughts and prayers.
    With love and prayers – Jacque Mankin / Clarence Irish

    Dear April, Evan, & Cousins.
    Richard and I send our sincere condolences. I am so very glad that I accepted the invitation to fly out to Kansas back in 1997. My dad was always reticent about family ties, but he too was pleased that I had the chance to meet my Kansas cousins. I was able to share photos and stories with him before he passed away that May. It’s good we were also able to connect on Facebook. While we never spent much time together in person, the warm and loving relationship between you, your son and your mom was always very apparent in your posts. I’m certain that your memories will carry you through this difficult time. Much love, Annalie

Leave Your Condolence
