    Dad told you he would be back. He was there yesterday at the Meadows to visit, to hear of your passing. How he and the family enjoyed your gifted talent and playing the piano, accompanied with your singing and stories of the past. Thank you for indulging dad in your ‘now what does he want to hear’. We absolutely cherish those moments with you and are so blessed that you included us, in the conclusion of your days at the meadows.

    Dear Dorothy and family,

    I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of your Mother. There is little I can think of that is harder in life than bearing the loss of your Mother. Find comfort in remembering the good times. My sincere sympathy to you and yours.

    Dorothy and Emily,
    I’m so sorry about the loss of your mother. I have such good memories of you and your parents when you lived across the street from us on Jones years ago. You and your families are in my thoughts. I hope this goes through this time. Sincerely, Jean
