    Shirl and Family,

    Like Shar, I have many great memories of being at your house. Your mom was always there, baking and laughing. I too was envious of the family she loved so much.

    So very sorry for your loss.

    To all the Langs.
    My deepest sympany to everyone on the loss of Art. She was a grerat lady and will be missed by many. She was always so funny everytime I’d see her I would give her grief about who was shorter my mom or her. And then I would pat her on her little head and she’d pretend to hit me with her cane. Even at Rosies funeral when I was talking to her I gave her grief about she had no cane to hit me with and she doubled up her little fist, shook it at me and said I got this,as she smiled as she said it. Iwil miss her along with many.
    You are all in my prayers.
    Love Annette Rabideaux

We thought of you often this week as we waited in palliative care. We hope you are finding comfort in each other, in your faith and in the love your mother had and gave to so many people.

    Mike and I want to express our sympathy to all of you on the loss of your Mom. We feel so grateful to have seen her this summer and witness her grace, love, and that sense of humor, all in the midst of seeing all of you too, at Rosie’s birthday party. Please know all of you remain in our hearts and offer sympathy and support with all that you have been through.
