I am so sorry to learn of your wife's passing. I only met her once many years ago. I live down the street from you Mr. Zatrepalek. Dianne Bradley told me yesterday. I knew she had been sick recently. I am so sorry. With all our sympathy.

Roxanne, April, and family - I have known Anne for a very long time, although I had not seen her in quite a while. My mother and Anne were sisters-in-law many years ago. I always liked Anne very much. She was always very kind to me and I enjoyed talking to her whenever our paths crossed. I know you will miss her very much, and I am so sorry for your loss. May God bless each of you during this time and in the days ahead.

Kenny, Chrissy, Ty and Barbara,
I am so deeply sorry for the loss of your mother, grandmother and former mother-in law. My heart truly aches for you all and your extended family. I can honestly say I know how you feel because I just recently lost my grandmother less than a month ago. Nothing will ever fill the void they leave in your heart but treasure the memories always and take comfort in the LORD for he will never foresake you in your time of need. Look to him for comfort and strength to get you threw this difficult time and all the days that follow. May your heart have peace knowing she has gone on to be with the LORD where there is no suffering and you will see her again one day. If there is anything I can do for you guys please dont hesitate to call. Love Always, Ruth
