    I am so sorry to read the loss of your Mom, Kathy. No one can replace our moms, and seeing her photo, you are your Mom’s replica. Without a doubt, you will have great memories as will your family.

    My deepest sympathy to the Stout family. I worked with Alice, John and Kathleen for many years at GVA. Alice cared for so many people in many different ways and being part of GVA was just one of her ways to help people. May she go to her eternal reward and may she rest in peace. With prayers, Anna May Latunik

    To the Stout Family, So sorry to learn of Alice’s passing. She certainly was a strong, determined fighter as she has endured so much in recent years. I was always amazed at Christmas time when we received one of Alice’s homemade cards, even after her major stroke. My husband grew up as a close friend of John’s and knew Alice from school. John always kept us informed as to Alice’s progress until his passing. Know all of you have another big ache in your hearts now.
