So sorry…

Carol, Kathy and family, I certainly feel your pain with the loss of your mom. She was such a force of nature and I remember loving her laugh. What a great neighborhood we had. I am sure the Susan Lewis gang could tell some great stories about her. She bandaged my knee the time I fell in the woods and cut it open and was so sweet about giving me allergy shots. I am sure she and Jack have reunited and both have a cocktail in hand! Much love to you all, I know how much she was loved, admired and will be missed. Margaret Howser

Thinking of You

Dear Kathy and Family,
My condolences to you and your family.
Your mother was a great lady. As a STE’s student nurse she was always so kind, helpful and a mentor. Once graduated she always stopped me in the hall asking “How are things going?”
Over the years she was admired and respected as a manager.
I pray that she felt God’s presence as He took her home and that you and your family feel God’s embrace as He walks beside you at this most difficult time. She was a jewel of a lady!!
My prayers are with you.
Marsha Haughaboo Buelterman
