Thinking of you all at this time and celebrating the life of your mother/wife. So many great memories I have of her and your family. You are truly a deep threat in our family's history and we are so grateful for your friendship over the years. Love you all so much and wish I could be there to honor Corrie and support you all with hugs and tears. Will be thinking of you the next few days and hope to see you in the future. xoxo Jennifer & Ryan Dornbush
