Jerry & Family, I am so sorry for your loss – you are in my thoughts and prayers. Slowly the grief will begin to be replaced with all of the wonderful memories – there is nothing that compares to the love of a Mother.
So sorry to hear about Aunt Fannie. I’m so glad I had a visit with her at Mother’s.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Barbara and Jerry and their family at this difficult time. Fanny was a joy to be around, and she loved her flowers,and coming to St Paul’s Church.
I miss having her sitting in the front of the church.
