    Osage mnHi Sis…everthing went so well at Mom’s celebration of life, and I want to tell you how great it was for all the things you took care of. In addition, you deserve many blessings for your steady and unconditional love caring for Mom the entire year. I now hope and pray for some restful times for you and for slowing down on your work schedule so you can come and stay with me more often. Thanks again for your never ending kindness, you sure received the “caregiver” gift from Mom! I love you so much Cheryl! Dee Dee

    Dear Dee Dee,
    I was sorry to learn of the death of your mother. Even at our age, the loss of that presence for a daughter can’t ever be truly healed. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Hi girls,, thinking of you alot these last few days I never got to thank your mom for all the liver and onions she made back in the St. Mary`s school days or sister Julia checking our milk cartons to see if we really did eat it. I still can`t eat liver but I think of those days whenever I hear the word liver. By the way ,the other meals were great !

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Gerry’s family. I had the honor of meeting and even dining with her while rehabbing in ManorCare, but I went home in December. She was such a cheerful, always smiling, and made people feel better by seeing the bright side of things. And family was very important to her. She spoke about family alot. Take care.

    our herts broke with the call of Grandma Geri’s passing and prayers went out to our family as they mourn the loss of one “classy” lady who will be missed but NEVER forgotten. I finally broke down and told Matt today and he was upset but in true child faith said she is in Heaven with God.
    God Bless you ALL
    Kevin, Joleen, Matthew, Anna, Elizabeth and Emma
