    To all our family and friends-
    Thank you for the out-pouring of comfort and concern that we continue to receive. Our mother was laid to rest yesterday in an ice storm, yet so many came to say their farewells. We are truly touched.
    Our hearts are broken, but we are so very grateful to have you to comfort, to pray, and to share our grief. Not only have we been blessed with Mom, but we have been blessed with you as well.

    To my dear cousin, Joe and family,
    Please accept my deep sympathy on the passing of your loved one. I hug you all in my heart in this time of sorrow. The earth has lost a beautiful lady but heaven has gained a very special angel. May the good Lord’s love and peace strengthen you and make your grief bearable. Rest In Peace, dear Teresa.
