My sincere condolences to June’s children who I remember from our Chrystal Beach days. I have never met such a brave independent person like June. I know she will be missed.

Dear June, I will miss our conversations, as we had so many. We shared tears and laughter, and that is something I will always remember, as my thoughts go to you! I will miss you, my friend! Rest in Peace <3 To June's family, may you find peace and comfort in your memories! She loved you all, very much, and shared many memories of her own. May these same memories bring a smile, and even a tear, as you remember your wonderful Mom.
