  • Ingrid, Pat and Michael,

    We’re so sorry for your loss. Your mom and grandmother was a lovely lady full of warmth and humor. Holly and we enjoyed the few times we got to meet her.

    We hope the three of you can continue to be comfort and joy from memories of your mom as you move forward.

    Mark and Holly

  • I am so sorry for your loss. It was a real pleasure to have met your grandmother. I thought it was really sweet of her to take the time to talk to me about her time in Germany when she was young. She had explained the pictures on the wall and what they reminded her of. That was a lovely time. Thanks for sharing your grandma with me.
    May the Peace of the Lord be with you and your family, Sophia
