I’m so sorry to hear about Aunt Donnie’s passing! Prayers for all of you. I used to talk to her quite a bit when we worked at the hospital together. She really did love her family and was so proud of all of you!

Hugs to all of you!

We are saddened to hear your mom has passed. We have such good memories of your mom and dad, with you kids, spending time in “the woods” having campfires and hayrides with the Schippa’s. So long ago, yet so fondly remembered. Sending our 💕 and hugs to you all. Wishing we were able to send our condolences in person. Keeping you all close in our prayers.
