    Dear Eileen and Nick, You are in our prayers as you mourn the loss of your dear mother. In time I hope that these thoughts and prayers will be of comfort to you. Marc and I would have liked to be there on Saturday but we just returned from out of town. I hope the visits with family and friends allowed time for recounting the joy that your mother brought to others and happy memories that will ease your sadness. With love and sympathy, Lynn and Marc Lewandowski

    Dear Eileen, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. I am sure she was a wonderful woman because she raised an incredible daughter. Losing a mother is a very difficult thing no matter the circumstances. I pray that your faith and happy memores help you find a pathway to peace. Meg

    Hi Dick, Vickie and family. I was so sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. I know exactly how you feel. The past month and a half has been the hardest time in my life with out my mom. It is also very difficult this time of year with the upcoming holidays. But stay strong for your family. Everyone keeps telling me it gets better in time. I can’t see it right now but I am sure there are a lot people depending on your strength to get them through this, as well. My prayers and thoughts are with you. Take care and see you at the office. (work does help)

    I worked with Mollie for a lot of yrs. I remember when she retired. She had a wonderful sense of humor and was always willing to give me advice about my kids. I loved listening to her talk about her grandkids. She was a wonderful lady.
