    Dear Nate, Melissa and your sweet families,
    The many summers shared on the beautiful Pend Oreille River, with you, your Mom and dear Grandmother Vivian brought us much joy. The laughter, shared meals, talks around the campfires, water acrobatics and tremendous play productions cemented our forever friendship and care.
    We remember your mom’s smile that could light up any room, her tremendous pride in her children,
    her gracious spirit and her desire to please. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you gather to remember.

    Always in our hearts & prayers,

    Karen, Kasey, and Riley
