Not sure what to say?

Patty, Dino and family and Sodl family,

Your mother was truly a beautiful person inside and out. Her kind, gentle and caring personality made her a joy to be around. We hope that the knowledge of how lucky you were to have had her in your lives will be a comfort to you and help you through this difficult time.

We are so sorry for your loss.

Tom and Carol Schneider and family

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

Dear Cousins - my deepest sympathy to all of you, so sorry I couldn't be there during this time, my prayers will always be with you for peace and love.

So sorry to see you go, but I'll always have such fond memories of times we've spent together. Family time with everyone was something I looked forward to, the good cooking and music and sing-a-longs. And, so now you'll be in the company of your brothers and sisters that you'll share many more good times. I'll miss that special smile , your sweet quiet ways of always making us all feel good. God be with you , be sweet.

My deepest sympathy to the Sodl's and their extended families. Many years ago Helen held a special place in my Mom's heart and she and my Dad (Bernie and Mary Gabryluk) spent many happy nights polka dancing with George and Helen at the Edelweiss Haus. I'm sure that their reunion is a happy one and that the polkas are playing and
the beer is flowing.

Our sympathy and prayers to all your family.

In Loving memory, you will be loved and
missed always!

Sandy and Family,
Just read of your Mom's death. Your Mom was a special lady...we would sit at the A&R meetings and whisper silly stuff while Frances Mai would be running the meeting. Of course, I would get the evil eye and your Mom would just sit there and smile!!
Don't cry because she died, be happy that your Mom lived such a long life and that you were such an important part of that life.
Sending prayers to you and your family.
May Helen rest in peace.

Dear Patty and Family,

Please accept our deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time of sadness.
Marge, Bob, and Robbie Lloyd
