Messages of Condolence

  1. May you find comfort in the memories that are yours to cherish always, and strength in the companionship of those who share your loss…. I have learned never to underestimate the healing power we all have. It is always there to be used for the highest good. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5:4) May it be a source of inner strength to know that there’s a loving God watching over you, and that, throughout this time of need, He’ll stay close by your side. I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.-2Timothy 4:7. As for me, I will lie down that I may sleep; I shall certainly awake, for Jehovah himself keeps supporting me. -Psalms 3:5

  2. My sympathy goes out to the family of Verna Olexo. She was a childhood friend of mine. We attended Hungarian school together and made our first Communion together as well. I have many good memories of my friend and was sad to hear of her passing. God bless her and her family.

  3. Dear Cheryl & family
    I was sorry to see the notice of Mrs. Olexo’s passing in the paper.
    Please accept my prayers and sympathy. I have been thinking of you and your family this week and will continue to do so.
    The photo of Mrs. Olexo is so nice, I never got the chance to meet her, even though I am a neighbor. She looks like a lady who is beautiful on the inside as well as the outside.
    All our sympathy,
    the Sara family
    Jim and Jessica Sara
    Rebecca, Bethany, and John
