To Dr. Bill Begue and his daughters and family, my most heartfelt condolences. You and our world has lost a so kind and caring person and, now, heaven is an even better place with her soul now in residence.

My wife, Loretto, and I wil always be so grateful that she was in our life, if ever so briefly. May God bless you, Bill, with His Peace and Grace. Girls take care of your Dad.

On behalf of the entire Edwin & Teresa Hasty Family, I would like to offer our deepest sympathies for the loss of your wife & mother, Jane. We lived on "south" Saturn Drive and my sister Jane was very good friends with your daughter Jane. This past December, we laid our beloved father Ed to rest. He too, has a memorial page on this Feeney-Hornak Shadeland website. Please know that our prayers are with your entire family for peace & comfort during this difficult time.

I worked with Jane at Comm. Hosp. on 4NT. I was the day unit clerk & she was the night nurse. I was always happy to see her when I came in to work. She was a sweet person & very kind to everyone. I know she is now an angel in heaven. I would have liked to come to the services but I had to work. God bless her family. Pat Harmon

where there is FAITH there is LOVE.
where there is LOVE there is PEACE.
where there is PEACE there is GOD.
where there is GOD there is no need!

MOM has no need for anything now because she is at PEACE.

I will see you again, and "THANKS" for being such a wonderful caring MOTHER.

Love Kim
your 'baby girl"
