    Èrnie, Cheryl and Mark. Please forgive me for not being with you as you were for our family. I am exhausted from too much activity. Your Mom was a very classy Lady. Always a smile and nice word for others. She will be missed. Now her and your Dad are together as they should be. Know that she is never gone as long as we keep them in our hearts.

    My deepest sympathy to you all. Your Mom was a very special lady and one of my mom’s best friends.
    My prayers are with you all but knowing that Phyllis and Jennie are holding the door waiting for her makes me fine comfort in knowing the 3 amigos are back together again. HUGS to you all.
