Our deepest sympathy from the Medical City Cardiac Rehab family. We have such love and admiration for Cornelia, she has been part of our group for such a long time. We have been reminiscing about all things Cornelia this week. Such great memories of her birthday celebrations here, discussions about books, and just remembering her kindness and wonderful personality and great sense of humor. Her pecan pralines she always brought at Christmas are legendary. We will miss her so much and are so glad to have had her as part of our group.

Aunt Corrie was a great human. Definitely one of the "funnest" and brightest humans in our extended Family. Surviving her sister Dorothy (our grandmother), she was so supportive and generally a COOL, strong woman. She will be missed by her extended family throughout the States.

Dear Signe and family, My heart aches for you the your loss of your mother. You will be in my prayers as you adjust to the absence of her physical presence, but I know she will never truly leave you. Her wisdom and love will remain in your hearts as one of God's greatest gifts for eternity. With sympathy and prayers, Karen
