  • Jeff, Kim, Becky and family,
    I grieve your loss and will be praying for each of you! Your Mom so deeply impacted my life on so many levels. She was a 2nd Mom to me and you were good to share her with me! My folks I’m sure were there to welcome her home!!!!!!!!! Looking forward to seeing her again! Lovingly, Linda and Carrie

  • I am sorry for the loss of your mother, mother in law, and grandmother. Karol kept me in the loop over the last few days. It is great that you were all able to say good bye to her and that she spent her last days surrounded by family. Take care.

  • Becky and family,

    I am sorry to hear of the death of your mother, she was a wonderful lady. My condolences and thoughts are with you at this time of sorrow. May God bring you peace and comfort in your loss.

  • My sympathy to your family. Barbara and I were in confirmation class and were confirmed in 1939 (I believe) in St. Paul Lutheran Church, Route 98. Marion, Ohio. The church is no longer there. Our son Wayne was in school at Pleasant with one of the boys….I’m thinking it was Geoffrey but I’m not certain. Again, my sympathy to all of you.

  • i’m sorry to see that barb passed away i can still remember when we would get the family together on a sunday we had so much fun

  • Dear Becky and family,

    Tony and I are sharing in your sorrow and pray for you regularly. We know that God is the giver of all comfort. We love you all and miss you too.
