    I have a hole in my heart knowing that I won’t be seeing my dear friend (2nd Mom) anymore. It also saddens me that I will be away for the wake
    But I am grateful that I got to say goodbye and tell her that the SACCO’s adored her, from Charlie on down to our grandchildren Rest In Peace and we are sending hugs to the entire Guthrie Clan

    I may not be there today, but my heart is with you all

  3. Randy,Brandi,Brielle and family so sorry for your loss of mom and grandma. At these hard times remember the good moments that you shared with her. I’m glad I got to see her at Brandi’s wedding.
    My heart goes to everyone .

  4. This is my great grandmother and I loved her too much then to but in words. Since she passed I have never gone through a day just thinking about the great memories I had with her. Looking back most of my memories are filled with grandma, Either her house, ect. I would get so excited to go to grandma’s house and be devastated to leave. All though Christmas and thanksgivings is never going to be the same without going to her house, I will never, never, never forget about her sense of humor and bright smile all day every day. R.I.P
