  4. To the family of Libby – I have had the honor of knowing and working with your mother/gramma for the past six years. She was a dedicated volunteer for my program – STAGES. Libby has touched many childrens lives in such a heartfelt positve way. She will always be remembered for her yummies cookies and snacks. The children absolutely LOVED them and her for taking time to think of them!
    Libby also has touched my life in such a positive and inspirational way. She was so giving of herself and her time. I have always thought of her and the other lady volunteers as my extended family. She had such a big beautiful heart and always shared about her family and loved ones. I will truly miss her!

    With Sympathy –

  5. You are so fortunate to have such a wonderful mother. She was always there for you thru all your difficult times – and you have all had plenty of those. I don’t know what you would have done without her.
    She was so caring and understanding. I don’t remember her ever saying an unkind word – always seeing the best in everyone and everything. I’ve always envied her endless energy!!
    I enjoyed all the holidays we spent together – Christmas Eve was always my favorite! I really think of her as family.
    I know she will be missed by so many people but especially by you her loving daughters and grandchildren. Take comfort in knowing how much she was loved. Treasure your memories.
    I wish I could be there today for you but know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Love, Patty
