I wanted to send condolences to Nora Marie’s entire family as I am unable to attend her viewing. Nora Marie – and Andy – have left me with wonderful memories of them. They both hold a special place in my heart and always will. So thankful that you were all blessed to call them your family. I can only imagine the joyful reunion they had in Heaven as they were almost always together. The words “Well done, thy faithful servant” hold true for both of them – two lives well lived! We will continue to keep your family in our thoughts and prayers.

Pam and Dave – So sorry to hear about Aunt Nora. She was such a terrific lady, and always looked like she stepped out of Vogue magazine with her clothes and hair just right. We had such a fun time at Blake’s graduation party, as Aunt Nora stayed late into the afternoon visiting. Aunt Nora will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. Brian Bednarczyk.

Pam, David, and Family, my deepest sympathy on the passing of your Mother. I was sorry I wan unable to come to the funeral home.

From the first time I met your Moth-er, I knew she was one of a kind. So very special, and she made you feel so much at home and loved. I never saw her that she did not have a smile on her face. God certainly has received into his glory one very special angel.

My thoughts and prayers are with you during these most difficult times.

In Christian Love,
