  • Amanda and Tom, my heart goes out to you both across the miles…..your “Lady” will be sorely missed by all whose lives she touched through the years. Wayne and I held fond memories of times shared and family occasions celebrated. I truly understand your shock and grief for mine is still so fresh. Be kind to each other; take care of each other;
    allow each other time and space to grieve and gradually come to a new normal. Time will eventually guide you forward. Go with God. Carol Weiss
