It is true, Lucille that we cry for ourselves, for our loss of you. But we know that the love you gave to those you loved most was strong. I am so happy that you and Jim are together, so that you can share in Heaven,an even greater sharing of love.
You gave every ounce of your energy to take care of your husband, eventho you yourself were so sick.
You are truly missed. Love, Toni

Donna and Debbie,
Your mom was best friends with my sister, the late Nancy Wright. I have very good memories of your mom who was our neighbor. She had a great personality and we we shared a lot of fun times together in school. I'm very sorry to hear of her passing. John Thomas

Donna and Debbie and families, I am so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a fantastic woman who loved your father very much. She cared for him throughout his illness and overlooked her own health.I do not know how she did it while working a full-time job. She loved Jimmy so much and now they are together and they are both w/o pain. I am praying for your strength to get through losing both of your parents so close together. Much Love, Aunt Toni

Deb and Donna,
I am so sorry this is coming so soon for you both. I remember your Mom helping mine so much with my wedding - she was so good at it! I will always remember your parents laughing over cards with mine. They were both fun with a great sense of humor. I hope, in time you can take comfort in the memories you created together.
