Roy, Bill, and family: Your mom was a wonderful lady. I spent many mornings having coffee with her, went to Green Bay for a few weekends with her, and we talked endlessly. She told me all the stories about young married life, and some stories about you two growing up.......many with much laughter! She loved the piano music and dancing. And she loved your dad and you boys. She may not have shown a lot of love outwardly but just by the way she talked and did things, you knew she loved you so much. We shared a birth date........which was rather uncanny when we both found out! She was always dressed nicely daily, and boy, she looked great when she was dressing to go to a wedding or somewhere special. She always had earrings on, and especially rings, and they meant a lot to her, each with their own memories. She was a very small woman but she was very strong willed! I will always miss her, and I love her forever. I will see her again, as you will. We will all have our memories to sustain us until then. Wishing you God' comfort and peace. I can only imagine how her face will light up when she reunites with your dad!! Enjoy every minute, Gerry! Hugs and love to all of you!

Dear Bill and Roy and family, we are so sorry for the loss of your mother. I remember when you still lived on Center St. when we were kids. Your Mom was always so nice. She was a great lady and I'm sure she will be greatly missed. We send our deepest condolences.
