Theresa my heart goes out to you, your father and the rest of your family during this time of loss – your mom sounds like an amazing woman. I’m so sorry for your loss.
To my dear aunt Millie, since the day my mom pasted you took me under your care and helped me through so many, many hard times. I hope you realize how very much you were loved and will be missed. I will miss your smiling face and happy voice when I spoke to you. I know you are all together looking down on us helping us try to understand why you had to leave us now. Put the coffee on Aunt Millie will see you soon. So sorry Theresa, Mark and Uncle Chet. My Love to all.
So sorry to hear of Ma Seil’s passing. … All of my thoughts and nprayers are with you all.
My favorite, long ago, memory of your mom was when we were in high school I would see a statue of I forgot who-probably St. Jude – turned facing into the corner. When I asked her once why it was like that, she said he wasn’t listening to her and she was mad at him! Your mom was so awesome! May the lifetime of memories bring you joy of a life fully lived!
My heart goes out to the entire family. I am so sorry for the loss of such a warm, kind lady. She will be missed but never forgotten…She is in peace and looking down at you all…
Chet and family So sorry for your loss. Even though we have lost touch with you over the years we have not forgotten the special times we had when we were younger. May God be with you and your family now and in the days ahead. Don and Darl
