Even though I have never met her personally, I have heard many wonderful things about her. Praying that the Lord will give you comfort and strength in the days to come.
I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. I will never forget her. She has a special place in my heart and my memory. I remember picking cherries from the tree outside her kitchen door, and I remember her apple dumplings! But most of all, I remember how she always made me feel loved and welcome in her house. I will miss her. My prayers are with you all.
Judi and I send our sympathies on the loss of Aunt Carolyn.
My thoughts are with you during this time of terrible loss. Your mother was one of the loveliest women I have know. I have missed her presence in my life over the past decade. She only showed me kindness and love in my lifetime and it was all my lifetime. My love and thoughts are with all of you now.
Our deepest sympathy and prayers are with the whole family at this time. We all loved Carolyn–she was very ‘special’.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Rich and Kathy
Please accept my sympathies. You’re Mother was always a role model for many years at the Altoona Bible Church. She was a woman that I knew and admired. She will always hold a special place in my memory of women who meant much to me in my life. My prayers are with you.
So sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. Know that our thoughts are with you at this time.
Jay and Jackie
Susan, I’m very sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. You took such good care of her. It was my pleasure to have known both of you and to have had the honor of helping care for her. I know she is at peace now and pain free. You and your family are in my heart and prayers.
With our sympathy to Dick Burket and family during this time of loss and sadness. Our prayers are with you Dick and Kathy that you will know His presence bringing comfort and heartfelt peace in the coming days. He is with you always, even unto the end saith the Lord. God Bless and in Christian love.
