Post a Condolence

Dear Uncle Milty, Kim and Kevin, Pam and Reinhard, Brad and Lois and your children,

I am so glad I was able to visit with you at Aunt Joy’s memorial services! I meant to get up and say a few words, but I was too moved at the time to do so. I thank dear Aunt Joy for making me feel more connected with your family the last several years. She reached out to my sisters and I with her “Dear Ones” emails catching us up on how she and Milty and you were doing. We also had some lovely chats on the phone. That sure helped me feel closer, as I have lived out of state for over 40 years, and wasn’t that connected until her emails.

She was a tremendous loving person and communicator, and will be missed so much. Pam and Kim you gave wonderful, very meaningful heart-felt tributes to your mom and so did your dad!!! Lisa and Sandy and I loved the stories and how you quoted Bible verses!

I know we were all stunned it seemed to happen so fast. But at least she is in Heaven now with a healed body with the Lord, and with the loved ones who have gone before her.

Blessings and comfort during this time of loss and grief.

Love, Susie
