|Mark and Pat,
I am so very sorry to hear of your mothers
passing. May God watch over you and your
spouses children and the rest of your family. I
never really had the chance to meet your mom
but she must have been a wonderful lady because
she raised 3 amazing sons. I didnt forget
Mike, I did have the pleasure of spending time
with him and know they are together once again.
God Bless You Both and again I am so very
|I am so sorry for your loss. Ruth was such a
sweet lady and was nice to everyone. This is a
big loss for you all and I am so sorry. I know
it's hard, but you all have gained such a
beautiful, sweet Guardian Angel. I like to think
she's in Heaven servin up waffles and some
scattered, smothered & covered hash browns. I
love you all and if you need anything please
don't hesitate to ask. ~Dawn~|
|It's hard to believe this lady, who was one of the
strongest, kindest, most generous and loving persons
I've ever known, is no longer here. I'm grateful
that I was part of her family so that I had the honor
of knowing her. She showed her kids what it meant to
be tough and self-sufficient and because of that, I
know the healing process will be difficult, but no
doubt you will do it to honor her because she
wouldn't want you to cry over her for long. I will
miss her, miss her laugh and always remember the love
she showed me.
So sorry for the tremendous loss in your life. I will
keep you in my prayers. |
