Most importantly to Mom, Christine Liebrock: I thank you for all of your guidance which has shaped me into the person that I am. You chose to stop working outside the home so that you could be there to raise us. I imagine that we went without some luxuries, but you made sure we grew up rich in every way that you could. You taught me what family is. Before I was born, you welcomed my sisters and their mom into your life. Before too long myself and Kerri came along, and a blended family was formed. I am sure it took work but you guys normalized it for us all. I truly thank you for that. Because of you, Dad and Janet I don’t have “half sisters.” As I aged into an adult, met the love of my life, and started a family of my own, I feel like I have gained a deeper understanding of life and love from your perspective. I love you and miss you, and always will until we meet again xoxo

To Mom’s coworkers: the quilt that you all contributed to was beautiful. She was amazed at all of the names that were on it, and I am sure it brought comfort to her at each day of her treatment. In addition, I have to mention the yellow roses... Seeing every one of you come in to add to the vase during the visitation was incredibly touching.
Erie Shores Hospice: The staff and countless volunteers were incredible. When there was a need (or want) for anything, somebody was there in an instant. Please know that you all have an incredible gift. The running family joke now is that our waistlines have grown from the delicious meals and baked goods that you insisted we eat. Mom always loved her animals dearly, and although Molly and Oliver were unable to travel to see her, she enjoyed many visits from dogs, bunnies, and even a horse. We were provided a comfortable, non-clinical environment to enjoy our time with Mom, and it eventually became a second home to us.

My husband Kirk: you have done so much. You have been the receiver of my many ugly cries and mood swings... I truly don’t know how you have put up with me. Thank you for being able to step up when I have been unable to.
To my other parents, Bill and Brenda: there are no words to thank you. You have dropped your lives for us and the kids so that I could be where I needed to be. (And also, thanks for teaching my baby that napping is ok, I only tried for 5 months!)
To our extended family, and friends: thank you for the visits and time spent with us recently. It has been comforting hearing old stories, and most importantly reconnecting with each of you. Aunt Paula, your eulogy was perfect. I love you. I have had countless texts and phone calls just to check in on me, and even though I haven’t been able to respond to them all yet please know they have been so appreciated.

It’s time to pass along some (long) thank you’s. There’s so much more I wish I could put into words, but this is all I can do.
First and foremost to my Dad: Mom was always the caregiver, housekeeper, shopper, chef, and the organizer. As time went on and Mom couldn’t fill all of these roles, you learned how to step into them seamlessly (although your daughters might have a cooking lesson or two coming 😉) Dad, you have done a terrific job throughout this and I admire you greatly. I hope that you are able to enjoy some quiet time to watch the birds at the new feeders.
To my sisters Kerri, Cheri and Juli (brother in laws, nieces and nephew): Mom put up one hell of a fight, and we rallied right alongside her. I know we made her proud. We have been growing closer over the recent years, but in the last month we have melded an inseparable bond. I am certain she held on for as long as she did because she was enjoying having all of us together nearly every single day. Our get togethers will never be the same, but we will make a way to pay tribute to her at every one.

Gale (Jaker) and family
My deepest sympathy to all of you. Chris was such a wonderful person swept away too soon. I have many memories of her and always had a great time whenever we were together. God bless her soul and help ease the pain of her loss to those who loved her and were touched by her.
