I’m so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort help you during this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4 & Psalms 83:18). Jesus prayed for God’s Kingdom to come because He knew it would intervene to solve all mankind’s problems even sickness and death. (Revelation 21:4,5 & Daniel 2:44).

Your Mother was a wonderful friend to our parents, The Kroger’s
My favorite memory was the Halloween party at Queen of Martyrs ... your Dad was Lurch, Mom was his monster wife
She was a wonderful woman
Loved her laugh
Wish we could be there, out of town
Our sympathies to Susan, Janice & Marcia
Love and prayers. Joe & Anne (Kroger) Shock
