Dear Jeanie and Bill,

I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you at this time of sorrow. It helps to know that she is in a better place where there are no more tears, pain or sorrow.

Dear Larry, Jeanne and Family,

I am so sorry about your mom’s passing and the pain you are feeling at this time. I know it feels like your heart is breaking and will never get over this. I felt this way after my dad died and then my mother’s passing. The only thing that made me feel better was to know that they were at peace and in no more pain and that they were all together again. Dad and Uncle Newman are cutting up and Aunt Lorena and Aunt Stella are getting caught up on all the gossip and giving their brothers a hard time. My mom is trying to get her two cents worth in and dad is saying “Ethel, be quiet.” Again, I am so sorry and my thoughts are with you and your family. Love, Carla

I wish to express my most heartfelt condolences and sympathy to you Larry and to the rest of your family members for your great loss.

There is quite nothing like the loss of a parent particularly a mother.

At least now she is at peace and looking over all of you in your times of need.

There are no words in the english language that l can possibly say to you, that will make you feel any better at this sad time. But even though we have been miles apart, l feel like l have honoured to be a part of your family. And l have memories that l will cherish forever. All my love to the both of you, your family and of course Isis.

I would have loved to see Isis sitting on Stella’s bed.

As Always Trish

Jeanne & Bill,

No words can possibly fill the void in your heart. Although you doubtless will miss her from now on, be comforted that she is in a better place.

Jeanne and Bill,

I am so sorry for your lose. Words can not express the way you are feeling but my heart understands oh too well. Last April I lost my father suddenly and then two days later my mother suffered a massive heart attack and had by-pass. Since then my life has changed greatly as my family and I live with her and care for her each day. I know that Stella was living with you and this lose is tremndous. Please know that you two and the boys are in my thoughts and prayers. Please let me know if I can talk to you and if that would help. The healing does come ever so slowly and the saddness fades into wonderful memories.

All my love,
