Just read about your Mom in the newspaper. We are so sorry to learn of her passing. She was a wonderful woman who always had something funny to say. We both absolutely loved her. We know she suffered for many years in this life, but today she’s the recipient of a brand new body that can never be touched by pain again. Our prayers are with you all.

Patsy & family,

We were so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. We would love to be able to come, but due to circumstances beyond our control, cannot. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I have so many fond memories of Aunt Rose–I can hear her laugh now! I remember the times when the whole family was together and all the joking and laughing.

Patsy & David, we have some photos of you one Christmas when you were little and we were together. I’ll see if I can dig them up and send you a copy. I’ll be in touch.

Much love, Susan
