Mom I miss you so much I can barely function. My heart hurts so bad. I hope you heard what I was saying to you on the last day. Give dad a big squeeze and kiss from me and I'll see you again.I'll think of you every day. I love you so much.

My thoughts and prayers go out to my cousins Terri, Tammy, Tina and Mary Kate and your families. I am so very sorry for your loss. I have some very fond memories of when we were young. One in particular was when you guys took me with to go camping. Gosh that was my first taste of camping and boy has it been in my blood ever since, and I have Aunt Jeanie and Uncle Sonny and all you girls to thank for that. I am sorry that I will not be able to be there for the funeral, but we are coming home this fall for a visit and hope we can get together then for some good ole story telling and some hearty laughs.
Love to all,
Jennifer Pete-Desrochers

My thoughts and prayers go out to my cousins Terri, Tammy, Tina and Mary Kate and your families. I am so very sorry for your loss. I have some very fond memories of all of us doing fun family events together as young children before my parents moved us out here to California back in the mid 80's. I am so very sorry I cannot be there for the funeral, but we are coming home for a visit this fall and look forward to spending time with you guys.
Love to all,
Jennifer
