  • To; Teresa and Pam,
    My name is Jane Nicol just seen in the paper that your mom has past, I know that she is probably relieved to be able to depart and go to heaven because her faith in god was very strong. I live in the Gables nursing home and I was unable to visit Mil crest as often as I did, I was always excited to visit with Pat. Sorry to hear that your dad has passed in September of 2012, Jamie passed away in Dec. of 2012. I always cherished the friendship of my family and your parents we always had a great time together, I always missed those good times as we grew older but I still Cherish them forever. I remember you when you was young and as a ornery teenager but always remember you parents loved you very much and always commented about there love for you. I remember when your children was born and your little girls beautiful blond hair, and when Derek was born Grandpa was so excited to have e his little boy. I often wonder many times where you and your children were and how you was doing. Now I see that you have grandchildren, that is so very exciting and i know you must really be spoiling them. If you have photos of you family I would love to have some, I also miss Pam what a sweet gal she was I was glad to know she is still living at her home at Lutheran Home of mercy and didn’t have to move around. If possible I would like to have a picture of Pam, Occasionally have Pam in my dreams. I am glad your mom and Dad are together now and that you find peace that they are in there heavenly home together. May god bless you and your family forever.

    Love Jane Nicol
