Dear Jeannine and family, My sincere condolences to you all. You will be in my thoughts and prayers in the coming days and weeks. My best, Robin Fortin
My deepest sympathies to Mary's Family. I worked with Mary for many years in the Medical Record Dept.at St. Lukes. We knew each other thru many milestones in each of our lives and our families. She will be missed by all that knew her. I have wonderful memories of Mary!!! It was so funny that I was thinking of Mary just last week and thinking of all the fun times we all had when we worked together.
Dan,Jill & Emily...My sympathies go to each of you during this time. Think how happy she is with her heavenly father now! God bless you all and I will be praying for you. Love, Linda Hehr
Bob,Jeannine, all the Allen family
Here is a poem that has comforted me during loss; I hope it gives you comfort too.
****All is Well****
Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I, and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference in your tone,
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me and if you want to, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was,
Let it be spoken without effect,
Without the trace of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was;
There is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you,
For an interval,
Somewhere very near,
Just around the corner.
All is well.
