Not sure what to say?

Mom, It’s with a saddened heart I’m saying goodbye to you. It’s taken me awhile to write this because partially, I didn’t want this to be goodbye, and, partially struggling with how to say it. Then, remembering one of your favorite hymns “In the Garden”, know you are now in His garden enjoying the flowers (with no allergies), at peace and free from pain.
Thank you for your “Mother’s Love” and hope you've alway known how much you meant to me. I will cherish those good memories we shared...

This is probably one of the hardest things we have had to do. We have to say goodbye to one of the kindest sweetest people we know. Thank you for always being there for us. You are always in our Hearts. Rest in peace mom.

So many happy memories, from high school, to trips and "girls club" Always a good friend. You will be greatly missed

I worked with Dot at NJ Bell in the early 1980’s. It was my first job out of college and she was so kind and helpful to me that I still remember her all these years later. I also remember how proud she was of her daughters and their families. My condolences to all of you.

Dear Eileen, I am so sad to hear of your mom's passing. She was a great lady. I will always remember her kindness and for always welcoming me to join outings with your family. I hope fond memories of her will help to ease your loss.

Dear Holly and Eileen, sorry to learn of your mother's passing. She was very good to my mom for many years. I'm sure you remember all the good times they had at girls club.
