  1. Dear Gerry and Family, We rejoice with you in your Mom’s release from her pain. We mourn with you in the loss of your Mom, our Sister-in-Law, and Aunt. May you feel God’s loving and comforting presence as you go through this difficult and challenging time.
    Regrettably, due to Mom’s (Aunt Pat’s) failing health, she is unable to make the trip to attend the viewing or funeral and I (Marilyn) am unable to come as I need to take care of Mom and my husband, who had surgery a week ago. We have wonderful memories of years past and those of late. We spoke to your Mom every couple of weeks and visited several times a year. We will miss her so very much. Please stay in contact. With love, Aunt Pat and Marilyn

  3. Dear Jerry & Deborah,
    I was sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing.
    She was my neighbor on Boston St. We kept in contact over the years. She sent me her beautiful tating many years ago. I’m sure you will have beautiful memories of your Mom.
