To the Bransteter family,

My sincere sympathy on the loss of your mother/grandmother.  I remember her passion for the work she did at Church.  She always had a smile on her face and was willing to lend a hand - she will be missed by many.  May God embrace you in His Loving Arms and grant you His Comfort and His Peace.

Cindy May Cook (Rev. Larry May's oldest daughter)

My deepest sympathy to the whole family. We were all so blessed to have her in our life. She was such a thoughtful, helpful person. We served on many committees together at church and she was so willing to be there to help. I will miss her tremendously. My heart goes out to all of you, you are all like my other family. God will see you through
