To Mary , Bob and family-
May God bring you comfort and peace at this time. It’s so hard to say “goodbye” even if we know that it’s only for a while. Know that I’m there with you in spirit tomorrow as you lay her to rest. Your mom was special in God’s eyes for all the smiles and kindness that she shared with all of us and her pets. I’m sure she is rejoicing that she is free from that earthly body. Stay strong. I’ll be praying for all of you
Love, your friend Carol

Bob and Family,

I was so sorry to hear about your mom . I often remember conversations she had with me that in the long run helped teach me to be a better person. I’m glad you had her in your life for as long as you did. I am finally out of T. Hill. It’s taken 5 surgeries and Bob #2 to make me realize how much more there was to life and family that I was missing. I will be thinking of your mom & dad holding hands, free of pain and smiling down on their son and his family every night when Bob and I look at the stars and the planets from the deck. PS: Brenda sends her condolences
