There will never be another lady like your mother. She always had a kind word to say and always had a smile on her face. Our heart and prayers are with all of you.

My sympathies to the Groh families. My best childhood memory of Paulie and Marie, was coming over during the holidays and going down to get a homemade sausage. She was a lovely lady and a special family friend. May she rest in peace.

Our deepest sympathy to the entire family. It is very hard to say good bye to a parent. May your memories give you peace at this time.
