Condolence & Memory Journal

I volunteer at St Francis and knew your mom from her service there. She always had a big smile and we enjoyed her companionship. I am so sorry to just learn this sad news and extend my prayers to the family.

Kaye and family,

We're so very sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. Her smile and sweetness shined through, especially when I saw her with your or one of her grandchildren. I am preparing to go be with my Dad who is having a heart stent thursday, but please know I'm lifting you and yours up in prayer, today and in the days to come. She is a shining example of Proverbs 31: 26-31. "Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. ..."

I know she felt the love of her family with her and the welcoming arms of those who went before her as she probably skipped right into the pearly gates. Again, please accept our sympathy and know you will be in our prayers in the days to come
