There are no words for the loss of a mom and yours was one of the best! So many wonderful memories, laughter and hugs through the good times and the bad! I will miss her terribly. She was my "port in a storm" always! She helped us grow to be the strong woman we are today. My heart breaks for you all, but I know she is right where she wants to be. She is happy with Pa and Conny and free from pain. I’m am sure of it! Love to you always

My Aunt Marie was one of those special individuals who knew how to love well, live well, and laugh well. I will miss her dearly, but I know she and my Uncle Tom are dancing together once again, with him singing their song. Dana and Tommy, please know that you all are in my prayers. Love you both!!

When Someone you love has passed away, never look down to the floor with sadness. Instead, keep your head held high and look to the heavens, for that is where your heart has been sent to heal itself and those who have passed will live inside our hearts forever. So Sorry for your loss. Prayers and Thoughts go out to you and your family...
