Know that we will keep you and your family in our prayers. I was saddened to hear of your mom’s passing. I was just talking to David at the basketball game on Friday and he told me that she wasn’t doing very good. I was planning on coming to the funeral home to pay my respect but because of the weather was unable to. Please accept my condolences. I know how much your hearts must ache as I have lost both of my parents. God has called her home and she is now with all of her loved ones that passed before her. They were waiting with open arms for her. Praying that your days will be filled with all of her loving memories and know she is with OUR DEAR LORD now.
Many nice memories of Helen. She cared about others and especially her role as a CCD teacher at ST. Francis.
Our Deepest Sympathy for family and Prayers for Aunt Helen. I hope someone can send a prayer card from the funeral home to me.
