Messages of Condolence

  1. Dear Eileen, My deepest sympathy to you and your family in the passing of your beloved mother. May she rest in peace. May your fond, loving memories of her bring you comfort in the days ahead. Love, Kathie Johnson

  2. Please accept my condolences on the passing of your mother. She is at peace and with your father in Heaven. I will always remember her for her eloquent,loving personality.

  3. In thinking back on my mom’s life as I remember it over the past 58 years, I realized that so many of my memories were not solely involving my mom, but also my dad. Even with his passing in 2001, it is hard not to have a “mom” story that did include my dad or the family that they created out of love and 59 years of commitment.
    But, this is a service for mom so I must start by bringing up a few of the memories I have, which made her one of the two very special and unique individuals in my life. Also sharing with you a few examples that show that at times, opposites can attract.
    Mom was a bad driver (having gone through the garage twice). Dad was a great driver and spent many hours on the road with his job and being chauffeur to his family. Mom was extremely dramatic (I did not call her Doris DelRio, star of stage, screen and cinema, for nothing). Dad was always calm and took everything in stride. I never realized the buffer he was with my mom, until his passing. Mom always wanted to be on the go, experiencing all that caught her fancy and making sure my dad was aware of those wants. And even though dad enjoyed many of those experiences, he was also happy to stay home and spend time with family, friends or taking part in a playful game of dirty hearts.
    But I also remember many similarities they shared. Their love of country, home and most importantly, family. Watching them dance together, making it look so effortless and graceful. Family holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and the many special events we shared with them. And yes, even taking care of them as they aged and eventually, holding their hands when God called them home. I am sad that I now have lost both of my parents, but how fortunate that I had these two special people in my life. I hope your memories of them are a comfort to you now and in the years to come.
    I now say goodbye to my dear mother. Please take Dads hand as you look down from heaven at this gathering of loved ones, and until we meet again, know you were loved and will be missed.

  4. Bob, I hope the loving memories of your mother get you through this
    difficult time.
