Today I learned that my friend died last week. For eight years we shared more that the street that separated our homes. Good food, and some experimental recipes often made their way across that street and we could walk over without calling first. We celebrated that kind of honest friendship: supper with our husbands, George at the piano, John testing a Sunday joke, sharing stories about our children, even a cat who preferred life on the other side of the street. Alas, we moved, our men got sick, George died, and John's journey with Alzheimer's lasted thirteen years. Dorothy and I missed crossing that street.
Ann, Scott, John, Bill--Your mother was a great person who loved each of you so very much.
John & Scott,
Just saw the E mail from Wayne on Dorthy,s passing. I remember her so well and how soft and patient she was with everyone she touched. I hope this is a time to celibrate such a wounderful person and her steadfast faith in Jesus. She is home with George. I would have loved attending her service. She also put up with our Stone Pigeon Rock band in the basement what a trooper God bless her.
Ann, Bill, Scott & John,
I just saw your Mom's obituary in today's paper. I'm sorry to hear of her loss. I wish I had seen it earlier. I would have loved to have attended her service today. I have so many great memories of growing up in Kessler and of your Mom, Dad, your home, the lake house & all of you! My condolences to all of you.
Ann, we are so sorry to learn about the death of your Mother. May your memories of her bring you comfort, and may God's promises give you assurance and be a respite from the pain of such a great loss.
Sorry to hear about your mother Bill. Your mother was a such an easygoing Sunday school teacher and someone I tried to emulate. 6 years with her tried & true Kessler Park Methodist tolerant love for childern as I tried to understand my daughter & her classmates
