i remember watching perry mason and matlock with you. you encouraged my love for law and inspired my desire for further education. you inspired me to be independant, a trait that i encourage of my own children. time certainly has only lent you to us for what seems like a moment in time but one day we will be reunited in paradise :) love and prayers for strength and peace to the entire bortz family.

Thank you for your wonderful gift of life you have given me and a lifetime of warm memories and lessons you imparted. I miss you so much but I know you're close, watching over us and protecting us as you did in life and continue in death. I can't express in words how much you meant to me but know this, I loved you with every fiber of my being and I am truly thankful that I was able to care for you as you cared for me, even in the end.

Your loving daughter,

To the one and only MumMum,
It is hard to believe that you are not here for us to see, but I can feel you in my heart. You were such an inspiration to your children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. Somehow they all came out Mum Mum babies, and I can see why. I also enjoyed your humor and how darn cute you were. I have to say I always got a laugh out of something you would say or do, everytime I was around you. I will cherish the days when you would stay with us when you were sick or on a get away. I enjoyed caring for you, you were so greatful for the smallest things. Missing you is a real heartbreak for us all, but you will suffer no more. I thank you for my husband whom you raised to be such a giving and honorable man, and he wasn't afraid for people to know how much he adored his mother. He honored you in life trying to always be the best man he could be and he truly did succeed. His committment and love for you is unmeasurable and I know he has a new angle watching over him. I promise to take care of him and the boys and I will never stop missing you. Please give Pop Pop our love and may you rest in eternal peace until we meet again. I love you Mum Mum and thank you for being such an important part of my life. Letting you go was the unselfish thing to do but it was wrong to see you suffer, when you left us a part of my heart went with you. You went with dignity and honor all the way till the end. What a trooper you were and I admire the courage you showed each and every day at the hospital. I love you to the moon and back and know you felt the same. Give my dad a hug and kiss and don't let him sell you anything, you know how good he is at that. Till We Meet Again May You Rest In Peace Mum Mum! All my Love and Respect
Your Daughter in Law (Shelley aka Shelday)

I was truly sorry to read about the passing of your Mother. I'll alway's have fond memories of her when we were growing up in Reading she was really a very nice person. I don't see any of you guy's from the old neighborhood much anymore but I just wanted to pass along my condolence's to you and your whole family.

I can't believe it has only been a little over a week since you left us. It feels like a lifetime already. I have thought about you every minute since you have been gone. I have so many fond memories of my mummum (especially your crooked thumbs and telling us to get upstays and you calling me Bincen). Words can't explain how much you meant to us. We love you so very much and you will be in our hearts forever.
