May you be comforted knowing she will be reunited with your Dad and share in eternal life with Our Resurrected Lord and Savior.
    Hearing of your loss stirred many memories of the happy home your Mom created for you all. Too many to mention with Jane!, summer sleepovers with Jane, Mary Jo and my sister Peggy, a crazy fun scavenger hunt with Steve, Tim at Gunders at Lake Erie and looking at scrapbook pictures of Judy and Jim and admiring how they were so much older, wise and more accomplished than we!
    Again, Love and condolences. “May the choirs of angels come to greet her. May they lead her to paradise. May the Lord enfold her in His mercy. May she find Eternal Life.”
