So sorry to learn of Aunt Chris' unexpected passing. She was quite a friend to our mom, Donna Rae (Munn) Coulson. They always had a great time together. We pray for the Munn and Herrick families. Our very best to Yvonne and Vance. You guys did a wonderful job helping Aunt Chris in her last years, and we love you very much. Jim and Maggie

What a great person and she will be sorely missed. I'm so lucky to have met Vance my freshman year of college, became friends, roommates and brothers. Our house was like a family and Mom Herrick was the life of the party. I loved both of your folks, Vance. I'm sorry they're gone but now they're back together. Love, thoughts and prayers to you and Yvonne! Todd
