Jamie and family,
Very sorry to hear about your loss. You will be in my prayers.
We will remember Mary’s kind and gentle smile. It was always a pleasure to be in her company. She will be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time.
AN IRISH BLESSING
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
May the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
Dear Laubenthal Family,
I just wanted to express my sincere condolences for your great loss. Although this is a very difficult time may you find comfort and peace in the loving arms of family and friends. I have also found much comfort in passages such as John 5:28,29 which speaks of the resurrection hope as well as Rev. 21:4 where God promises to do away with all the things that cause us suffering and pain including death forever. It is my sincere hope that these thoughts will bring your family comfort as well.
To Dan and the whole Laubanthal family,
We would like to offer our deepest condolences for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you throughout your time of mourning.

As I write this with tears in my eyes I think of the time Mary and I danced on the lunch table at Ursuline and the nuns made us count tax stamps after, Mary running for the school bus, being CYO cheerleaders, working at Erie RR where everyone was a west-sider so we met many lovely people, We are glad we just saw her in July with her same smile as always.May God always let you know she is close and will be praying for all of you. God Bless.

Marty–I am very sorry to hear about your mom. If you need anything, please don’t hesitate to ask. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
I’m so sorry to see your mom passed. I will always remember her coming in when you’d demonstrate your Irish dance…and telling me about how your brothers threw you down the stairs in a sleeping bag.
She was always so nice when I’d come over to play and swim and I never go to Parma without thinking about you and your family.

Jim, please know that Stephen, the kids, and I wish we could be there in body and we are there in spirit! We would like to be there to remember the fun Monday Night Meal times at the Parkview and times spent with you in Hinckley and Starr’s Acres. Mary was so loving to all she encountered and loved you very much. We cannot begin to understand the depth of your sadness but we do know we send our hugs and love to you and your family during this time of sorrow, laughs, tears, and rememberance.
Dear Tom and family,
I was truly sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. As I sat and thought about her one particular memory came to mind. I remember 30 years ago when your grandmother passed away. If I recall correctly it was in December before Christmas. I can clearly see your mom and Aunt Nancy standing at the funeral home waiting to receive family and friends and the two of them were wearing “JOY” pins. Your mother had explained that this was a time of joy because her mother had gone on to eternal life with God. What a great example your mother set. I pray that all of you can find the same peace and comfort at this time as your mother did. Your mother set many other good examples living her life through her faith that all of you can reflect upon and be proud of.
