Thinking of you and your family during this difficult time. Your mom is at peace and is smiling down at the wonderful daughter who helped care for her when she needed you the most. May all the wonderful memories you have bring you comfort along with all your friends who are here for you.

My Dear Kathy,
My heart aches for you right now. You have been walking this journey and caring for your mother since I met you so many years ago. She, thankfully, has God's peace now. I am praying so hard that you and your family feel SOME of God's peace during this time of pain.
I love you so much. Please call with ANYTHING I can do--even if just to listen.

Kathy and John, I never had the opportunity to meet your mom, but I can tell she was a very important part of your families lives and will be missed greatly. We are told that our physical lives here on this earth are but a vapor, but our spirit lives on in a new and wonderful way that is beyond our human comprehension. I'm celebrating for her and sending sympathies for your loss.

Great Aunt Joan was always so nice to me, my brother and sister. She always sent us birthday cards and she was always happy to see us. We really loved her and will miss her.

Aunt Joan was a wonderful, fun, loving woman. My mom, Delores, and Aunt Joan used to take all 9 of us kids to the drive-in. We were always spending the night at each other houses and Aunt Joan was like a second mother to us 5 Richart's. Aunt Joan loved old doll houses with all the details. Her entire family loved dogs. I don't remember a time when "woman's" best friend wasn't in their home. Aunt Joan also loved the old movies; musicals and dancing were her favorites. She is such a sweet and endearing woman that she will be missed by many she knew for only a short time.

Her daughters were very attentive and scheduled their time to be sure Aunt Joan was never lonely and knew just how much they loved her. I am sorry for their loss and pray that their transition through grief is brief and that the fond memories comfort them until they are, once again, reunited.
