  2. Dear Deb and family
    I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mother was a very sweet lady and I will always remember her beautiful smile. Although you will no longer physically see her, she will be right there beside you every step of the way. May God give you strength in the difficult days ahead.

  3. Dear Deb, Fran and Family,

    There are no words that will really ease your grief, as the links here become unlinked, it becomes re-linked with those who have gone before. We know he will be waiting and looking over all of you, just as he did here. Just listen quietly with your heart and you will hear him, talking and laughing with you. I am so sorry, hugs and prayers to all of you.
