So sorry to read about your Mom, she was always such a sweet person to me when I was a kid, I’ll always remember how she let me help her making her rugs! I’ll always remember your family and know how it feels to lose your family as Patti & I have. Our prayers are with you all.

Chris and I were sorry to hear of Aunt Helen’s passing. So many great memories as we looked at the pictures in the video. I watched it with the kids and pointed out who everyone was, it brought some tears but mostly smiles. Please know that even though we could not be there at the service you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

With love,

Steve and Chris Saksa and Families
