Not sure what to say?

Sometimes feelings go too deep for words, and this is one of those times. I hope you know how much I cared for both your mom and your dad. I once heard a saying that will forever remind me of them it said "Sometimes our Hearts find more than one Home" which mine did in theirs. That is just one of the many things I will cherish forever.

"Martha Jean" was an awesome babysitter for us 6 Affeldt kids many, many years ago. I have many wonderful memories of her and Gary, and the Bartleys on Grand Street. Martha was very close to our family and coined our mother as "Florencey-Mama", which I'll never forget. I loved her contagious laugh and awesome spunkiness. My love to her family as you grieve this huge earthly loss. Rest in Peace, Martha Jean. Thank you for the gift of you. Love, Paulette (Affeldt) Tombarge

I am so sorry to the Gallick family, you'r mom was an awesome mother,grandmother and friend. She will be missed by many. Much love to you all.

She is now in Gary's arms, and very happy.We will miss her till we meet again.

Tim, Tony, Pam and Chris,

Although I am unable to be there in person, please know that I am right beside you in spirit, to say goodbye to your wonderfully kind, giving and loving mother, who was like a 2nd mother to me. My thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathies go out to you all. My only solace is that she and your dad are smiling, as they are once again together, playing those slot machines in heaven!

All my love


Luke, Logan and family..
Both Quain and I are so sorry for your loss. You all are in our thoughts and prayers.

Shannon and Quain Busitzky

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