Liz and Ginny I'm so sorry about the loss of your mother. She really lived a long life. I have so many childhood memories of her, elegantly lounging in the sun like she was on the French Rivera, shining her dining room hardwood floor until it sparkled, her very sturdy German leather shoes that were so good for all the walking she did, telling you kids not to eat much fruit it would upset your stomach. She was a very beautiful, charming woman. Remember at this time of loss, that she will always be in your heart.

To Rosemary's family, I was saddened to hear of your mom's accident/death and I know she will be missed by all of us that knew and loved her. She always had a smile and kind word and laughed easily. The last time I saw her at Hope St. John's was when you brought her a couple years ago Liz. What a wonderful reunion it was for all of us! I know she had a fantastic life during her 99 years on this earth, but how happy she must be now to be in the arms of her Lord and Savior that she loved and served. My love and sympathy to all of you.
