Dear Ted and family,
Please accept my deepest condolences for your enormous loss.
Marie was very much a bright spot in my day each time I had the privilege of seeing her come to our clinic.
She loved to share the most wonderful stories about her family and especially her grandchildren!!!
I will very much miss her lovely calming presence. I could have a terrible day, be running ages late... she was always kind and forgiving and jolly!!! And even brought me rhubarb!!!!

Most sincerely,
Susan Murphy

To my daughter-in-law & family. Losing a love one is one of the most devastating loss. I am so sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting your grandmother briefly and I'm so grateful that I did. You've talked about her so much, I could feel the love you have for her. Death is only for a moment. You will see your grandmother again. She's at home with her maker and Lord smiling down at her family and having a good time with all the other saints in heaven. May you be comforted in this time of unspeakable grief.
