Your Maine Jerolmack family send their heartfelt condolences, for the loss of your beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. What a blessed woman to have all of you in her life. It is my understanding she was struggling in the end, but I have no doubt she knew how loved she was. May she rest, in that peace.
