    It’s never easy to lose a loved one, especially when it happens suddenly. My condolences go out to Mr. Counts, Kathy Brannan and her family. The memories you all have of Mrs. Counts will last forever and I’m sure her influence over her family will be seen not only when you look to her spirit for guidance but when you least expect it. That is a sign of a wonderful mother.

    I want to express my deepest sympathies. Mrs. Counts was a lovely woman and I truly enjoyed our visits together at appointments for Mr. Counts. She was such a ray of sunshine and always made me laugh. She will be sorely missed.
