Dear Jennifer, Erik and family,
I was so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was a great friend and wonderful person. She put up a heck of a fight for a long time. She always had a smile on her face and a kind word for everyone. She will be missed not only by her family but, all her friends too.
When someone you love becomes a memory.
That memory becomes a priceless treasure.
My sister Cathy and Barb developed a strong friendship while they were in school. I was much younger than them, but have vivid memories of the fun they had. She also passed away this year after a lengthy illness. Whenever I would run into Barb, we would always reminence about their younger days and she would want to know how Cathy was doing. What I didn’t know was one of my wonderful students this year is her grand daughter! I had the privilege to have had sweet Emmah in class this past school year. I’m sure Barb was very proud of her. Pleasek know your family is in my thoughts and prayers!
