Neighbor Al,
Jim and I were sorry to read of your mothers passing. May Gods peace and strengh get you and your family through this difficult time.

My deepest condolences to the family. I will always remember Rita in a very special way with lots of love.

Another thought...
I am thankful that Grandma lived long enough for the birth of her youngest great-grandchild. In the past few weeks, she got so much joy out of anticipating, discussing, and celebrating the birth of baby Zoe. I spoke with her on the night Maegan and JJ went to the hospital, and she was absolutely giddy. She wanted us all to guess the baby’s weight, height, and time of arrival. At a time in her life when she had so much worry and anxiety about life, I am glad she was...

I thought of few more funny memories.

Grandma used to like Atomic fireballs. As little kids, when we saw her eating this exciting candy, we of course wanted them too.

Kenny, Kathy, Debbie and Alan,

My heart goes out to you. I guess it is because I will miss your Mom a lot too.
God Bless
Your cousin Joanne

My heart is very very heavy with the loss of your mom, my godmother and my Aunt. I love her very much as I know you all do. I can't imagine our lives without her. Although her leaving causes us much pain and sadness, her leaving has eased her hurt and given her relief. We are aching but we should try to rejoice as she has entered the kingdom of God. My heart goes out to all of you as you have lost your mother; and mother-ln-law, and a precious grandmother. She loved all of you very much...
